The prolific work of Tyrus Wong: Disney, Warner Bros., and Hallmark

One of the most impressive things about artist Tyrus Wong goes beyond his well-known work on the Disney film Bambi: it’s his ability to use such a wide array of mediums and reach out to such different audiences. Over his career, Wong’s atmospheric, emotive and poetic paintings inspired animated films for Disney, live-action cinema for Warner Bros., greeting cards for Hallmark, and dinnerware for Winfield Pottery.

In this gallery including previously unreleased artwork, you’ll see — starting with his early days as a painting student up through his days as a kite-making hobbyist, as he carried on his father’s tradition — how Wong’s creativity truly knew no boundaries.


Additional support for Tyrus is provided in part by The Louie Family Foundation, The Walt Disney Company Foundation, Buck Gee Mary Hackenbracht, the National Endowment for the Arts, County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors, Bill Yee, David Ahmanson, East West Bank, and Women in Film.
