Tyrus Wong is an artist whose most famous work was as art director for Walt Disney's Bambi. Wong's pastels and watercolors served as inspiration and influenced the backgrounds and overall look of the film.[1]

Wong was at Walt Disney Productions from 1938-1941, and left shortly after finishing Bambi due to the Disney animators' strike.

Named a Disney Legend in 2001[2], Wong's work has continued to be influential even to this day. In August 2013 thru February 2014, Wong's artwork was exhibited in a career retrospective at The Walt Disney Family Museum, entitled: Water to Paper, Paint to Sky: The Art Of Tyrus Wong.[3]
