At age 18, LA-born artist Tristan Eaton designed his first toy for Fisher-Price, and quickly became a driving force in the world of ‘Art Toys.’ Upon graduating from the School of Visual Arts in New York, Eaton co-founded the legendary KidRobot. Shortly after, he founded Thunderdog Studios, where he amassed a roster of high profile clients including Nike and Universal. In the years since, Eaton has become one of the most prominent international muralists. He earned the coveted job of rendering the classic Universal Monsters at Universal Studios and an elusive licensing deal with Marvel. Eaton’s work can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art's (MoMA) permanent collection, the Cooper Hewitt Museum, and the Long Beach Museum of Art, which will host a retrospective of his art career in Summer 2021.
