While in San Francisco earlier this month, we visited the Walt Disney Family Museum to check out the exhibit "Deja View: The Art of Andreas Deja" that showcases original work of his most iconic Disney characters, such as the menacing villain Scar.
In 1980, Deja was accepted into a training program at the Walt Disney Animation Studios. He passed the program and began working on much loved Disney productions. He worked on The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast & Princess & The Frog. The artwork in this exhibit include watercolors, charcoal, ink and paper, sculpture and more. I just love this watercolor of Simba & Mufasa.
But my favorites are his wire works...
If you are a fan of Disney and want to learn more about the history behind the magic then make sure to visit the museum before the exhibit ends. The Walt Disney Family Museum is also displaying works from Deja’s current independent project called Mushka, features a young girl and her tiger, “A story of love and sacrifice set in Russia”. You don't want to miss it!
More Work From The Exhibit
