Tyrus Wong 'Brushstrokes' Kickstarter Campaign

Postby Charles » Mon Nov 19, 2012 4:16 pm

A living legend at 102 years old, Tyrus Wong is a painter renowned for his work on Walt Disney's "Bambi" and for such film classics as "Rebel Without a Cause". He exhibited with Picasso and is an official Disney Legend. To the Chinese in America he's a pioneer and visionary.

Now there's a Kickstarter campaign to celebrate his legacy. "Brushstrokes In Hollywood" is the first in-depth portrait of the art, life, and enduring impact of Tyrus Wong. A film intended to chronicle his extraordinary career.

The goal is $35,000 by December 19, 2012. So far 41 backers have pledged $5,615 as of this writing. A good start! Click here to access the Tyrus Wong campaign on Kickstarter. Here's a video glimpse into the life of this remarkable artist...
