STREET LIFE | TRISTAN EATON x VERSACE IN HAWAII
Few people would mention the words street art and Versace in the same sentence (the more frequent combination is usually “purple Lamborghini” & “Versace”), but then again, Donatella Versace is not the average person. To breathe some fresh life into the vaunted couture house, the ageless fashion queen commissioned relentless street artist Tristan Eaton to paint a version of the classic Versace Medusa head logo in his unique style which he debuted in Hawaii last week. Taking up an enormous wall on the high-profile shopping strip on Ala Moana in Honolulu, the painting depicts the classical greek brand marque in a burst of radiant color and stunning realism, all rendered by the artist’s hand using thousands of cans of spray paint. Simply put, the effects Eaton has been getting with his newest body of multilayered street work are beyond stunning and show him to be working at the top of his game. The fact that he executed the entire piece in a matter of days while wearing a silk Versace shirt open to the waist only adds to the artist’s level of personal flamboyance.
