Born in Los Angeles, Tristan Eaton began pursuing street art as a teenager, painting everything from billboards to dumpsters in the urban landscapes of London, Detroit and New York. Designing his first toy at the age of 18, Tristan has since become a driving force in the ‘Designer Art Toy’ movement. As a creative leader in the world of advertising, Eaton regularly consults on many creative projects that span the globe and cross multiple mediums. His work can be found at the Cooper Hewitt Museum and in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
“Tristan is currently the President and Creative Director of THUNDERDOG STUDIOS, INC., a prominent New York-based Designer Toy Brand and Creative Agency and happily resides in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.As a graffiti artist turned illustrator turned toy designer, Brooklyn’s Tristan Eaton embodies the kind of hybrid multi-tasking style that is the hallmark of the modern urban artist. Moving from pencil and paper to paint brush and canvas to Macintosh to city wall, Eaton switches gears effortlessly, refusing to commit fully to any one medium as he goes.”
