Above Second is proud to present Tristan Eaton’s first major solo exhibition. Eaton began pursuing street art as a teenager, painting everything from walls to billboards in the urban landscape wherever he lived, including London, Detroit and Brooklyn. He designed his first toy for Fisher Price at 18 years old and has since become a driving force in the world of ‘Art Toys’, designing the Dunny and Munny figures for Kidrobot. In 2012, Eaton moved back to his childhood home of Los Angeles to pursue his paintings and large-scale mural projects full-time. His murals have become emblematic of the current street art movement, and can be seen all over the world including the Los Angeles, New York, Detroit, Guam, Honolulu, Berlin, and Paris. The greatest catalyst for Eaton’s work is people and contemporary culture. His work combines pop icons, typography, comics, and other visual stimuli of daily life. Living a somewhat transient, travelling life, he meets hundreds, if not thousands of people every year. These people can become friends, lovers, memories or simply just images loosely attached to a distant time and place. For this body of work, Eaton has chosen to focus on these people.
