Tristan Art is the quintessential young black entrepreneur. From humble beginnings graduating high school and working in factories in the small South Carolina town of Anderson, to seeing success and losing it all promoting parties in Charleston, to starting over in Baltimore and creating a foundation for lasting success, all by the age of 24, Tristan’s story is inspirational. You may have heard of Tristan because of his work creating custom iPhone cases for the likes of Nicki Minaj, Lebron James, Shaq, and Joe Budden, but his grind is so much more. He is an illustrator, creates animations for commercials, his clothing line, and his own cartoon “Tristan’s World,” and most importantly works in the community speaking to kids at schools and assisting charitable organizations.
We spoke with Tristan about his journey and his grind for one of the most legendary episodes of the Channel 10 Podcast yet. If you feel stuck and need some real inspiration, listen to this episode right now.
