Tristan Eaton’s “Liberty Mural” in Little Italy

A few weeks ago we caught up with the one and only Tristan Eaton almost immediately after he had finished up his brand new Liberty Mural in Little Italy, NYC. The gist was that the opportunity for the massive and perfectly-located mural was presented to him by The Lisa Project and the spot had been on his radar for years in advance.

Check out the video above to learn how Tristan went about painting it, its meaning, some of the difficulties he ran into, as well as the experience of having a permanent mural in such a high traffic zone.

And if you didn’t know, Tristan’s also the homie behind Tusto Corp’s bombing of a waterpark for our Issue 53.
