TRI STAN EA TON Tristan Eaton started his career with a toy that he designed for Fisher-Price when he was 18 years old. Before that he was an active graffiti enthusiast, painting on any kind of surface, even dumpsters in New York, Detroit and London where he lived as a teen. Working as an illustrator he was commissioned by clients such as Nike and even Barack Obama. Today, he is a full-time street artist, who focusses on fine art and large-scale mural work. His unmistakable style features loud colors in collagedesigns of pop imagery fused with iconography and symbolism and varying overlays and textures. It was clear that we had to have him design BLACK artist edition can. He agreed and chose our BLK 5070 „Horizon“. In the course of creating of the design, Eaton managed to tie in a distinctive combination of his most frequent visual elements such as faces, typography, line work, op art and image layering. His collage-like motifs give the spectator of his artworks endless details to decipher, almost like the images shift each time one looks at them, each time revealing something else more prominently, which gives his pieces an unparalleled depth and dynamism. And now, a little cluster of changeability is forever captured on our 10th BLACK special edition. 16

Two icons that immediately come to mind as pretty much owning the color pink are Hello Kitty and Buff Monster. No surprise as to which color Buff Monster chose after agreeing to design one of our special BLACK artist edition cans for us: our P 4000 „Power Pink“. To him, the color pink symbolizes confidence, individuality and happiness. Of course, all of his distinctive Buff Monster design elements like dripping ice-cream, one-eyed monsters and skulls are integrated into the design. The typical Buff Monster character has two teeth and freckles and seems to drip like melting ice-cream. The can design sports three of these little fellows, plus he decided to use a cool technique in which a few chosen elements have been left out in the litho printing process, leaving the aluminum colored base of the litho exposed for a metallic effect. The New York-based artist was originally known for his street art, but has extended his work over the course of the past 15 years to include collaborations with readily recognizable brands and the creation of vinyl and resin toys, prints, shirts, stickers and trading cards. He also has created a range of limited edition collectables, one of which is now this one-of-a-kind Montana BLACK artist edition can. BUFF MON STER 17
