On June 15, 2011, artists Tristan Eaton and Ron English got together (along with art critic Carlo McCormick and artist Dr. Revolt) to discuss Eaton’s latest project “The 3D Art Book” at the New York Public Library.  The book features art from 100 of the leading contemporary artists and as you’ve probably guessed by now, their works are in 3D!  Eaton mentioned the painstaking process to compile the book and getting the images transferred into 3D.  It was very fascinating.  Some of the works in the book took over 100 layers in Photoshop to complete.  It was worth all the work as the book is excellent!  The images look fantastic and the art in 2D is enough to transport you into another dimension, so now add another dimension to the work and it’s enough to make your head explode (in a good way, of course).  The 3D Art Book is available at bookstores and online now!

Happy birthday to artist Tristan Eaton!  He’s an accomplished painter, whose works reside in the permanent collections at the Cooper Hewitt Museum as well as MOMA in New York.  He is also a driving force in the world of designer toys.  You can check out a bunch of cool images on his official website, Thunderdog Studios.  On that site, you’ll see photos from the day I met Tristan Eaton (in fact, I am in two of the photos on the home page!)  He compiled “The 3D Art Book.”  As you can imagine, it’s extremely cool.  It features 3D images from artists such as Travis Louie, Mark Ryden, Jon Burgerman, Mint and Serf, Tara McPherson and of course Tristan Eaton.

Up Close and Personal opens May 12th from 7-9pm. It will also be open from 7-9pm on the 13th; noon-9pm and noon-7pm on the 14th and 15th respectively.   The show is taking place at 217 West 106th Street, Apartment 1A, in New York– Between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues.  I’ve been a big fan of Vandalog for a while and it was really cool to have a chance to speak with RJ Rushmore who runs the site.  As you can expect, he is an encyclopedia of street art and was more than happy to chat with me about our mutual love for the genre.
