There’s a special art piece now on display at Downtown Disney in Disneyland Resort. The new artwork celebrates the premiere of Disney’s newest animation film, Raya and the Last Dragon. Take a look in person if you visit!
The artwork was designed by Imagineer Xiao Qing Chen, who was born and raised in Malaysia. Qing’s intent for the piece is to celebrate differences by respecting, accepting and embracing everyone’s uniqueness and strengths.
This piece is loosely inspired by the art of Batik, which involves the design of fabric using hot wax, dyes and stamps. The Batik art style is quite commonly in the Southeast Asian region. The linework in this piece depicts traditional hot wax techniques that isolate areas for vibrant colors.
‘In the meantime, be sure to watch Raya and the Last Dragon‘ since it’s another great Disney animation! The highly anticipated animated feature film, Raya and the Last Dragon is now available in select theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access for $29.99.
The idea start with the artist’s hope for a world where we choose to celebrate differences. After all, this piece is about mutual respect and acceptance.
