This is a very special print and the first ever canvas edition Tristan has made from his new paintings. The original painting is 5 feet by 7 feet, acrylic and spray paint on canvas. The painting took Tristan almost a year of painstaking work and is the first in a new body of paintings in this style. We're extremely proud of this print project and hope you enjoy it! Each canvas is hand embellished, signed & numbered.
As some of you have heard, we are moving to Los Angeles! Tristan and the team are setting up shop in downtown LA and we got a head start with a mural in the LA Arts District! Check out the pics below and keep an eye out for more big walls coming soon!
How epic is this? We touched down in LA and immediately prepared for our book signing at the Chateau Marmont with a serious group of art legends: SHEPARD FAIREY, JAMES JEAN & GARY BASEMAN. The event went off with out a hitch and every single copy of The 3D Art Book got signed for many happy fans! Thanks to Bernstein & Andriulli, The Supper Club, and Prestel for making it happen!!!
This was an honor. Once The Sunset Strip Association heard that Tristan was born on the Sunset Strip, they asked him to paint a one of a kind 10 foot tall Gibson guitar to be permanently displayed on Sunset Boulevard! He's joining the likes of Shepard Faiery and many other artists in the project, so he had to do something special...so, Tristan dedicated the piece to his mother Gillian and painted her portrait from a photo taken when she was in her twenties. Aaaw! The guitar is wheat-pasted then spray stenciled then hand painted with acrylic.
Tristan & Shepard's guitars were on display together for the 3D ART BOOK signing outside the Chateau Marmont as well. Check it out...
A small drive away from LA was this epic exhibition happening in Arizona, put together by Eric Firestone Gallery and co-curated by our good pal Carlo McCormick. What an event! Giant painted planes were on display by How&Nosm, Retna and Saner with many smaller pieces painted by Bast, Tara McPherson, TrustoCorp, Erik Foss, Shepard Fairey and a bunch of others...CRAZY!
