Red Bull has launched a collaboration between street artist and Brooklyn resident, Tristan Eaton, and All-Star basketball player and Red Bull athlete, Deron Williams, to bring to life the performance of an athlete through the eyes of an artist on a limited edition can. The artist and athlete spent time together observing each other’s crafts, and how they could mesh their respective passions to create a limited edition Red Bull can. The Deron Williams Red Bull Energy Drink can is now available in New York and New Jersey, celebrating the 2013-2014 NBA season, and a video chronicling their collaborative journey is showcased at D-WillX’Tristan.com.
Eaton was captivated by Deron’s snake and panther tattoos, and used them as metaphors to showcase his athletic prowess on the court.
Additionally, Eaton hand painted a mural of Deron and the limited edition can on a 75-foot wall at Flatbush Ave. and Dean St. outside Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets.
