Greetings friends,

We’re happy to announce our second solo exhibition in New York. This one will be the biggest yet. Please join us.

‘This month, guerilla art group TrustoCorp brings their brand of humorous and cutting street art to Soho for their solo exhibition titled ‘Life Cycle’.

After a long summer of highly publicized, illegal street projects ranging from fake bus stop ads for ‘The Real Housewives of Baghdad’ to illegal billboards for ‘Drive Thru Lipo Suction’, the anonymous art collective brings their work in doors for a more in depth look at their perspective on the state of American culture. The exhibition examines the experience of growing up and dying American with four installations representing childhood, puberty, adulthood and death. With the American Life Cycle as a jump off point, TrustoCorp brandishes satire and criticism through a range of over 50 works including stained glass windows, giant board games, kiddie rides, fortune tellers and vintage arcade games.

While the work comments on the experience of growing up American, it also seeks to explore the life cycle of our nation as whole. In a time of economic disparity and record breaking wars, TrustoCorp subtly references the birth, rise and inevitable fall of the American Empire.

With larger than life art ranging from video to painting and kinetic, interactive sculpture, this is definitely TrustoCorp’s most ambitious project to date.

TrustoCorp formed 3 years ago, shortly after the 2008 Presidential election. Inspired and disgusted by the national political and cultural discourse, TrustoCorp gained notoriety by making political and satirical street signs which popped up in 13 cities around America. TrustoCorp quickly gained a large group of volunteers who actively install and spread TrustoCorp art throughout the country, making them more like ‘Fight Club’ than an art collective. Since then, TrustoCorp has graduated into other mediums including fake products that get ‘shop dropped’ illegally into stores, fake tabloid magazines and illegal billboards. These antics got them noticed by media quite quickly, resulting in Television features on ABC World News, BBC and FOX News.

Hey guys! Getting excited about Comic-Con and releasing the B-BOT toy. Here are a couple of better pics and a bit of background info on the toy and my signing…see ya there!

After almost 10 years of work in the ‘designer toy’ sub-culture, artist Tristan Eaton is branching out for the first time into the mass-market toy world with a new action figure for kids called B-BOT. B-BOT is inspired by the popular iPhone app created by Eaton and Art Director Peter Cortez which allows users to create their own characters using Eaton’s art. The inherent play factor of the app plays right into the features of the toy. The B-BOT action figure has multiple pieces that can be switched and reconfigured to make dozens of playful, silly and unique characters, adding a building block feature to the already popular ‘platform toy’ style.

Eaton already made a major impact on toy culture with his previous Platform Toys for Kidrobot including the Dunny and Munny (both of which are now featured in the MOMA permanent collection) as well as the Thundermutt and S.P.U.D. toys on his own Thunderdog brand. Moving forward, Eaton says ‘I’ve always wanted to take my style to a wider audience and find a way for kids to be able to collect as well as play with my toys. The B-BOT action figure is the perfect platform for that.’

A limited edition prototype of the B-BOT action figure will be released for the first time at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con through the newly formed Plastic City Toys (A subsidiary of Super Rad Toys), with a wider release slated for Christmas 2011. The B-BOT app for iPhone and iPad is available in the iTunes store.
