We are down to the final hours of 2016. And on social media, people are remembering those we’ve lost in pop culture this year. CGTN America’s Jim Spellman reports.

On Friday famed Chinese-born artist Tyrus Wong passed away. He was born in Guandong province in 1910, came to the United States and was instrumental in creating the look of the classic Disney movie Bambi.

He drew on traditional Chinese watercolors for inspiration and fought anti- Chinese prejudice on his way to influencing generations of artists.
He was 106 years old.
