There is an Exhibition up at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco now until Feb 3rd, 2014 featuring the art of Tyrus Wong, he was the art director behind Bambi. The exhibition will focus on the life and work of Mr. Wong, he is a celebrated painter, muralist, kite maker, lithographer, Hollywood sketch artist, calligrapher, ceramicist, and Disney legend, at 102 he is still a practicing artist today.

In this profile for NPR it is interesting to find out how Mr. Wong took animation into another direction, the story is told in a very nice way and I thought it was beautiful how he had the vision to make something so simple, so beautiful.
