Overview


Since he was a kid, artist, designer, and vinyl toy impresario Tristan Eaton has been obsessed with the nostalgic look of 3D imagery. In The 3D Art Book, he parlays this fascination into a carefully curated selection of over 100 works by established and up-and-coming contemporary artists, expertly rendered as 3D images which can be viewed with red and blue glasses (included in the book). Many of the pieces, by artists respected within the designer toy, street art, Pop Surrealist, graffiti, graphic design, and streetwear communities, were created specifically for this project. The included works range from otherworldly paintings by Eric White, Ron English, and James Jean, to graffiti pieces by Dr. Revolt, Claw Money, and HAZE, intricate designs by Tokidoki, 10Deep, and Mishka NYC, cartoonish characters by Jon Burgerman, Miss Van, and Gary Baseman, as well as pieces by heavyweights D*Face, Todd Schorr, and Shepard Fairey. Each image comes jumping to life when viewed with 3D glasses. Eaton's introduction documents his personal history as an appreciator and creator of 3D art, while an essay by cultural critic Carlo McCormick focuses on stereoscopic 3D's rise to pop prominence in 1950s America.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Newer technologies may have superseded those red and green 3D glasses of our youth, but that doesn't mean that the golden age of retro 3D art is over. In fact, the young creators who contributed the 100+ works in this dazzling pictorial prove that this supposedly obsolete artform can still spring to life before our eyes. What makes this collection particularly arresting is the diversity of responses by artists working in numerous genres; from neo-surrealism and pop art to professional graphic design; from graffiti and streetwear to cartoons and SciFi inspired toys. Editor Tristan Eaton contributes a fascinating personal view of the subject which perfectly complements the historical essay by cultural critic Carlo McCormick. Retro, yet infinitely hip.
