TRISTAN EATON: ALL AT ONCE
July 16 – October 3, 2021
The Long Beach Museum of Art is thrilled to announce TRISTAN EATON: ALL AT ONCE, a 25-year retrospective of the Los Angeles native’s work. Tristan Eaton began pursuing street art as a teenager, painting everything from billboards to dumpsters in the urban landscapes of the cities where he lived—from London to New York City. After growing up on comic books, graffiti and skateboard culture, Eaton designed his first toy for Fisher-Price at the age of 18 and soon became a driving force in the world of Art Toys, designing the Dunny and Munny figures for Kidrobot.
In 2004, Eaton founded Thunderdog Studios, a leader in advertising and commercial-art spheres, with regular commissions from a roster of clients including Nike, Versace, Disney, former President Barack Obama, and Elon Musk and SpaceX. Triston Eaton: All At Once will debut at the Long Beach Museum of Art and showcase 25 years of work by the artist, including street art, illustration, rock poster design and printmaking.
Special appreciation to The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation, Bess J. Hodges Foundation, Evalyn M. Bauer Foundation and BCM Foundation as lead sponsors of ALL AT ONCE.
