BIO

美國藝術家/玩具設計師崔斯坦·伊頓早在少年時期便開始在街頭四處塗鴉,從廣告看板到垃圾箱無一處放過。2004年,伊頓和設計師保羅·伯德尼茨共同為Kidrobot創造出3英吋高、有一對兔耳造型的搪膠模型「DUNNY」,可說是他最成功的項目之一。比起在藝廊、美術館舉辦展覽,伊頓更喜歡在戶外繪製大型壁畫。他希望將藝術帶給下層階級的人們,使他們不再只能觀看建築外側冷灰的水泥牆面、不再覺得藝術是不公平的。因此,他用多彩以及豐富的潮流圖文符碼,征服了大家的眼球,並受邀於全球進行壁畫創作。

American artist/toy designer Tristan Eaton began to graffiti on the streets as early as a teenager, from advertising billboards to trash cans. In 2004, Eaton and designer Paul Birdnitz jointly created a 3-inch high-density silicone model "DUNNY" for Kidrobot, one of his most successful projects. Eaton prefers to draw large murals outdoors, rather than holding exhibitions in galleries and museums. He hopes to bring art to the people of the lower classes so that they can no longer only watch the cold gray concrete walls on the outside of the building, and no longer feel that art is unfair. Therefore, he conquers everyone's attention with colorful and rich trend graphic codes, and is invited to create murals around the world.
