His art inspired Bambi and 75 other films. Who is TYRUS? In-Person Guest: Director/Producer Pamela Tom. Opening show, Friday June 16 at 7pm. Q&A with the filmmaker after the film.
TYRUS is Pamela Tom’s tour-de-force documentary about 105-year old Guangzhou-born, L.A. based visual artist, Tyrus Wong and his breathtaking scope of work across multiple artistic mediums and his personal and professional journey navigating racial bigotry in 20th century America.
The film makes meticulous use of Tyrus Wong’s exquisite art, archival footage, illuminating interviews and commentary from Wong himself to document how his unique style, melding Chinese calligraphic and landscape influences with contemporary Western art, helped the Disney animated film, Bambi (1942) specifically, and early Hollywood in general establish their signature visual styles.
