Over the course of a few weeks, Tristan Eaton recently finished painting a mural on backlot of Universal Studios featuring five of their iconic monsters. The 50-by-200-foot piece looks to be the LA-based artist’s best work yet and is a good example of the aesthetic his fans have grown to love including his signature patchwork style, attention to detail, and his use of references (he was able to explore Universal’s secret archive and view all of the original posters and ephemera from all of the monster movies). The wall, a massive soundstage on the northwest corner of the Universal lot, can now be considered the Mount Rushmore of monsters and features Frankenstein and his Bride, alongside Dracula, the Wolfman and the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
