Los Angeles-based artist Tristan Eaton combines portraiture and popular culture to create eye-catching murals. His lively and large-scale spraypainted works often juxtapose part of an illustrated, monochromatic face with a colorful mashup of imagery. We see stylized cartoon characters, logos, typography, and intricate patterns, and sometimes he'll layer these elements on top of each other. All of these parts form a larger cohesive shape that impressively spans the length and height of buildings. This isn't the first time we've been dazzled by Eaton's work – we first fell in love with his mural of Audrey Hepburn that graces in New York City's Little Italy neighborhood
Eaton started pursuing street art when he was just a teenager and painted everything from walls to billboards wherever he lived, which includes places like London, Detroit, and Brooklyn. He grew up on comic books, graffiti, and skateboard culture, and his upbringing is evident in these murals. The imaginative works showcase an interest in many different things and create bold compositions that immediately capture our attention.
