Tristan Eaton is a Los Angeles-based (by way of Detroit) multidisciplinary artist and muralist.
What’s your favourite animal?
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
I don’t know if it’s a superpower, exactly. Is it cheating if I say “eternal life”?
We’ll allow it.
What’s a piece you’ve done that you’re particularly proud of?
The posters for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
Which job would you like to have, if you didn’t have your current one?
Owning and operating my own movie theatre.
Sally Bricker (Tristan’s agent): No way! That’s what I want to do to! Tristan, I had no idea.
Tristan: This is it Sally! This is the plan. This is what we’ll do when we’re rich.
Would you rather be able to run at 200 mph, or fly at 10 mph?
Seriously? Fly, of course.
The Polestar Design Contest features a truly expert jury. Polestar Head of Design Maximilian Missoni, Senior Design Manager Juan Pablo Bernal and Car Design Research Director Sam Livingstone are the ones who will evaluate every submission, pore over every detail, and ultimately determine the winners of the contest.
The aim of a halo car is to capture people’s imaginations. To get them talking. And keep them talking. In that sense, Polestar 1 has more than fulfilled its purpose. Now an era is drawing to a close. To commemorate its life in the limelight, we decided to enhance its star qualities further. Because if you’re going to say goodbye, you might as well do it in style.
