When most Disney art enthusiasts think of their favorite pieces, they generally think of a Thomas Kinkade original, as a good portion of this late artist’s most popular work was inspired by classic Disney stories and their captivating characters. This weekend a legacy artist from Thomas Kinkade Studios, Dirk Wunderlich, will be visiting fans of the late painter to not only personalize and sign pieces of Kinkade’s work but also to show off his own original piece.

Wunderlich’s new piece was inspired by the classic Disney film “The Aristocats.” This stunning work of art features all of the main characters from the film displayed on a beautiful street backdrop in Paris, France. At this special event, guests can see the piece up close for the first time before Wunderlich takes it back to the West Coast.
Wunderlich will also be available to chat with guests at the event about some of Kinkade’s beloved pieces. Guests who purchase one of Kinkade’s pieces from The Art of Disney can have it personalized on the back by Wunderlich himself. Wunderlich will not only sign the piece but also sketch any Disney character on the spot.
Additionally, guests to the experience will get to pose for a picture with Wunderlich while holding their newly personalized piece of art.
