285 - Tristan Eaton
Tristan’s work can be seen in galleries, walls, toys and illustrations around the world and in the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art.
We learn about how Tristan’s current style has evolved from many practices in his past and how we’re really looking at road map of where he’s been and where he’s going. Tristan shares his past and how he used to keep all of his talents restricted to different disciplines in the world of design. How taking it slow and not allowing himself to feel rushed allowed him to stay in a calm spot and focus on just making the best work possible. From clients to freestyling, we hear how Tristan creates his huge outdoor murals from execution to preplanning. Depth and meaning in his work, trying to give his emotion and tone but staying away from being literal or obvious. How Tristan always feels welcomed in a city where he has a mural.
