Street Artist Tristan Eaton’s Inspirational Tribute in the Era of COVID-19

The Editors


Montefiore Health System with its creative company of record, Alto NY, commissioned world-renowned street artist, Tristan Eaton to create a towering mural in the heart of New York City to thank nurses and medical staff this National Nurses Week.


Eaton’s artwork is part of a massive multi-pronged Montefiore appreciation campaign to give nurses a deserved ‘digital’ ticker-tape parade, despite lockdown, by extending New York City’s famed “Canyon of Heroes” to every New York hospital door.


Born in Los Angeles, Eaton started pursuing street art as a teenager, painting everything from billboards to dumpsters in the urban landscapes of the cities where he lived – from London to New York City.


He designed his first toy for Fisher-Price at the age of 18 and soon became a driving force in the world of designer toys.



After forming his Creative Agency Thunderdog Studios in New York City in 2004, Eaton became a leader in the advertising and commercial-art spheres, and is regularly commissioned by a roster of clients, including Nike, Versace, and even former President Barack Obama.


Eaton is one of the most prominent street artists working today. His large-scale mural work features a meticulous, visual collage of pop imagery mixed with his unique personal style, and can be viewed in cities around the world.


Eaton’s art is also on display at the Museum of Modern Art's (MoMA) permanent collection.
