Heroes & Heroines are Focused
Tyrus Wong was one of the preeminent Chinese American artists of the 20th century and his art was featured around the country including alongside Pablo Picasso's work at the Chicago Art Institute in 1932.
Perhaps Tyrus's work is most accessible for children through Disney - his Chinese-inspired sketches and paintings set the artistic direction for Bambi!
Despite innumerable obstacles and a lack of recognition, Tyrus focused on the one essential passion in his life: his art.
