Tyrus Wong, A Celebrated Artist

The timely advent of an article in the San Francisco Chronicle recently caught my attention titled, ‘Artist Tyrus Wong’s legacy soars over generations.’ It is a great short piece about the legend Tyrus Wong whose work has been part of so many lives whether they have realized it or not.

Mr. Wong would be quite the inspiring individual to interview. At 102 he is showing little signs of slowing down,and his appetite for developing new artistic skills is as strong as ever. Check out his fantastically fanciful homemade kites!
