Long Beach, CA (September 21, 2021) - Furthering his impressive career milestone, Tristan Eaton: All At Once has been extended through the end of October. This 25-year retrospective of the LA-native’s ongoing work and studio practice has proven to be the perfect Summer show, showcasing Eaton’s playful work against the serene Long Beach coast.
People of all ages have been drawn to the show, with Eaton’s fans, budding art lovers, and even the ever-popular mayor of Long Beach, Robert Garcia, flocking to the Long Beach Museum of Art for record turnout! With such a successful run, the show has been extended an extra month, giving Southern California residents many more opportunities to explore the fully loaded exhibition.
The show transitions between guerrilla street art, iconic murals, game-changing design, and well-defined fine art, giving the viewer an atlas map of Eaton’s illustrious career. As one of the few Urban Pop Artists to demonstrate commercial appeal and fine art abilities, Eaton highlights the synergy and creativity that become possible when the artistic side and the business side are embraced as cooperative, rather than opposing forces. Like the works of Murakami and KAWS, high art and product fill the same space making merchandise, public art, and fine art equally relevant.
With this landmark exhibit comes not only entertainment, but community engagement and cultural experience, making it an incredible show for not just the artist and the museum, but the city of Long Beach as well.
As museum Executive Director Ronald C. Nelson says, “We are very excited to extend the exhibition for one more month. We have had record breaking attendance with this exhibition and quite frankly it is going to be a very sad day when the exhibition closes. Tristan is an amazing talent and the exhibition perfectly juxtaposes the quietly elegant aspects of Eaton’s art with his rebellious side.”
All At Once remains on view through October 31st, giving museumgoers many extra opportunities to fill their day with the colorful wonders of Tristan Eaton.
About Tristan Eaton
At the age of 18, Los Angeles-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 thereafter, he founded Thunderdog Studios, a creative agency where his artistic prowess and intuitive business sense worked hand in hand to amass a roster of high profile clients including Nike, Universal, and Hublot. In the years since, Eaton has made a name for himself as one of the most prominent international muralists working today. As he has established himself and shifted his focus to art and creation full-time, Tristan Eaton maintained his keen business sense, which has made him so valuable to some of the biggest movie franchises in the world. Eaton earned both the coveted job of rendering the classic Universal Monsters on the backlot at Universal Studios and an elusive licensing deal with Marvel, making him one of the only artists in the world allowed to create and sell work featuring Marvel characters.
Eaton’s work can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art's (MoMA) permanent collection as well as the Cooper Hewitt Museum and Long Beach Museum of Art, which is hosting a retrospective of his art career. For more information please visit www.tristaneaton.com
