At age 9, Tyrus Wong emigrated to the United States with his father. He was detained at Angel Island, and then settled in Sacramento and later, Los Angeles. Tyrus Wong is the artist who inspired the Disney classic “Bambi.” We are sad to share that he has passed away at age 106. Tyrus attended CAAMFest earlier this year, where he watched the documentary about his life, “TYRUS.” photo: Tyrus Wong attends CAAMFest 2016 Opening Night film. photo by Leanne Koh.
