Tristan Eaton Collaborates with Thierry Henry
Art meets action in a collaboration between Tristan Eaton and international soccer superstar and current Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry. Henry used his soccer talents to unveil a 24 x 21 foot mural created by Eaton at Madison Square Garden this past Friday in front of an audience of thousands. From 30 feet out, Henry struck the ball at five targets that launched a series of triggers and objects-in-motion that produced and revealed a work of art inspired by the Red Bulls and the city of New York.
Eaton and Henry met in the months before the project launch to discuss logistics and their common vision. Eaton was not only inspired by the team and New York, but by Henry's passion for art, music, and fashion as well. Of working with Eaton, Henry said "I have a huge admiration for the type of pop and modern art that Tristan does plus we have our love for Marvel Comics in common- so it was easy to connect." Eaton was similarly impressed with Henry saying, "It was also awesome to give a superstar like Thierry a challenge and make him sweat."
The mural will exist primarily at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.
