    Born in L.A. in 1978, Tristan Eaton started pursuing street art as a teenager, painting everything from billboards to dumpsters in the urban landscapes of the cities where he lived, be it London, Detroit, or New York. He designed his first toy for Fisher-Price at 18 years old and soon became a driving force in the world of designer toys. Eaton's work for Kidrobot, including the famous Dunny and Munny art toys, helped him achieve international renown and an ever-growing fan base. After forming his Creative Agency Thunderdog Studios in New York City in 2004, Eaton became a leader in the advertising and commercial-art spheres, and is regularly commissioned by a roster of clients that includes Nike, Versace, and even Barack Obama.

    These days, Eaton is one of the most prominent street artists working today. Eaton’s large scale mural work features a meticulous, visual collage of pop imagery mixed with his unique personal style, all executed with freehand spray paint on a colossal scale. Eaton now focuses on his Fine Art and large-scale mural work full-time, which can be found in dozens of cities across the globe from Paris to Shanghai.

    Eaton’s work can also be seen in the Museum of Modern Art's (MoMA) permanent collection.

    • Some background on LA's new logo via @72andsunny_ & @adage :

The heart of the campaign is the logo, which consists of a pencil-thin, connected L and A, stretched out to create a generous gap between the two. Within that space, the campaign frames personalities, artwork and other creations that help make up the local creative economy. "The logo is inspired by the truth that LA gives you space to create -- it's a wide-open canvas for creativity, providing the physical and emotional freedom to express yourself, experiment and make what's next," says 72andSunny L.A. Director of Strategy Kelly Schoeffel. "It creates a stage to elevate the people, places and things that define L.A., as well as an invitation to fill L.A. with your creativity." The logo is central to a new film highlighting L.A.'s creative culture. It frames musician Kendrick Lamar, who also sings the backing track, "Humble"; Chef Roy Choi, founder of the Kogi taco truck; tacos from "Trejos Tacos," the Mexican restaurant chain founded by action star badass Danny Trejo; architect Frank Gehry; jewelry designer Maya Brenner; artists Tristan Eaton and Shepard Fairey; conductor Gustavo Dudamel; and musician Anna Bulbrook, among others.
