Tristan Eaton Revisits the Sketch That Started His Vinyl Toy Career

Tristan Eaton is currently holding his first retrospective at the Long Beach Museum of Art. On view is a number of paintings and interactive installations, along with toys and sculptures that have equally become just as integral to his 25-year career.

To complement the exhibition, Eaton is releasing the OG DEVIL BUNNY, an early design that kicked off his foray into toy design. The 8” Rotary Cast Soft Vinyl figure references an 18-year-old sketch that the artist made at a Brooklyn diner in the early stages of his career. Despite never being made into a vinyl figure, the sketch would influence his prolific art career, along with becoming an influence as he co-founded the legendary toy brand, Kidrobot.

Limited to an edition of 250, the black and red figures come signed by the artist and include a box showcasing the original sketch. The OG DEVIL BUNNY is Eaton’s first toy release in 13 years and will be available today for presale at 12:00 PM PST on the artist’s website.

Elsewhere, Perrotin is showcasing an exhibition of curated cermamics by Takashi Murakami.
