Tyrus Wong’s atmospheric artwork gave “Bambi” its unique style

Celebrate the 75th anniversary of Disney’s Bambi and learn more about the artist, Tyrus Wong, whose unique approach gave Bambi its impressionistic style. Wong spent years honing a soft, atmospheric painting style that relied heavily on lighting and creative use of color, and his work inspired the entire Bambi team to create a groundbreaking film.

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.
