The Work of Triston Eaton for The Detroit Beautification Project

 Born in Los Angeles in 1978, Tristan Eaton began pursuing street art as a teenager, painting everything from billboards to dumpsters in the urban landscape wherever he lived, including London, Detroit and New York. Eaton designed his first toy for Fisher Price at 18 years old and has since become a driving force in the world of 'Designer Toys'. Eaton's design work for Kidrobot, including the infamous Dunny and Munny toys, led him to international fame and an ever growing fan base. As a leader in the world of advertising and commercial art, Eaton is regularly commissioned as a creative director and consultant for clients such as Nike, Hasbro and Barack Obama on projects that span the globe across all mediums.

Tristan's work can be seen in the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art (MOMA)

His large mural on the roof is still being worked on.

Triston's brother Matt was one of the central organizers for the event in Detroit
