This month, visitors to Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort will have the opportunity to meet three delightfully talented artists and see their wonderful Disney-inspired works of art. Throughout the month of February, The WonderGround Gallery in Downtown Disney will be hosting these exciting events. Let’s take a look at some of the Artists that will be greeting guests this month!
Artist in Residence: Gabby Zapata – February 9-10, 16-17, and 23-24 from 5-9 pm
Gabby has her own unique style which combined with her love of Disney creates bright cheerful imagery that is sure to make you smile. She is also a senior visual development artist at the Disney Digital Network in Glendale, California. She creates original artwork that you may have seen on Disney’s social media platforms. Gabby majored in computer animation at the Ringling College of Art & Design and sights Mary Blair a source of her inspiration. We absolutely love Gabby’s use of vibrant colors and the simplistic yet beautiful ways she illustrates these diverse, strong female Disney characters.
