Hollywood-born artist Tristan Eaton is currently presenting a solo exhibition of new works titled Legacy, presented by Detroit-based Library Street Collective. In his most personal and introspective showing yet, Eaton considers the theme of “legacy” as he explores various ways to pay homage to those who came before him and to honor their legacy for future generations. Producing an engrossing selection of paintings and fabricated metal print works, the artist has rendered detailed, abstract portraits to embody the dozens of audio interviews he conducted with those who have played crucial roles in his life.
Tristan Eaton’s “Legacy” exhibition is now showing through to November 14 at Shepard Fairey‘s Subliminal Projects Gallery in Los Angeles.
Japanese artist USUGROW is showing off his distinctive mix of calligraphy artwork at Diesel Art Gallery in Tokyo’s Shibuya district. Titled “Organic Contrast”, the exhibition runs until November 13 and is inspired by Los Angeles’ ‘Cholo’ culture through Usugrow’s distinctly Japanese lens. Go behind the scenes with the video above and catch a glimpse of the past 10 years of the artist’s career if you are in Tokyo in the coming week.
