Mike Peraza

Mike Peraza is an award winning designer with over 35 years of experience creating magic for the Walt Disney Studios, Walt Disney Television, Walt Disney Comics, Walt Disney Fine Art, Disneyana and Walt Disney Imagineering. He has also worked with legendary film makers Tim Burton (classmate at CalArts), Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Don Bluth, studios including Warner Brothers & MGM and 8 of the 9 Old Men. From working as Art Director for Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” on the big screen or designing “DuckTales” for the small screen, Mr. Peraza’s talents have helped shape the animation world, and usher in the fabled Disney Renaissance. In 2014 Mike received the Friz Freleng Lifetime Achievement Award for Animation Arts. In 2018 Mike received the treasured DFC Disney Legend award.

Born and raised in New Orleans, his animated station breaks for a local TV station solidified his dream to create animation and he set out west to attend the prestigious California Institute for the Arts, a university that Walt Disney himself established. Tuition fees proved too costly and he planned to leave. Disney Legend Jack Hannah, Dean of the Disney Program intervened with the Disney family offering him a full scholarship along with a job as Teacher’s Assistant enabling him to stay and study the craft he loved in addition to getting to know each Disney Instructor on a close one-on-one relationship. At the end of each year, students showed their films to an amazing audience including Ron Miller, Lillian Disney, Diane Disney, Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnson, Ward Kimball, Woolie Reitherman, Chuck Jones and other animation notables. Afterwards Mike found a note inviting him to come and work for The Walt Disney Studios, his dream job.

Mike went on to have a hand in the concepts of animated features for film, TV and games including projects such as: Fox and the Hound, Mickey’s Christmas Carol, The Black Cauldron, Dragon’s Lair, Space Ace, The Great Mouse Detective, TRON, The Little Mermaid, Return to OZ, Ducktales, Chip and Dale, Rescue Rangers, Talespin, Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Thumbelina, Stuart Little, Anastasia, Ice Age. DuckTales Remastered and others.

Gallery Disneyana+ is honoured to represent this living Disney legend. We look forward to offer an exclusive selection of Mike Peraza’s incredibly beautiful original art and sought-after limited edition prints and lithographs.

Portrait of Success – Original oil painting

This exquisite fine art piece is arguably the finest DuckTales-inspired artwork ever created which is also why we decided to release it as a limited-edition giclée print earlier this year. This quintessential Scrooge McDuck portrait is created by Mike Peraza. The painting is rendered in vibrant oils on canvas-lined masonite board measuring 71 x 58 cm. It has been professionally framed to an overall size of approx. 76 x 65 cm.  This painting is in pristine condition and hand-signed by Mike Peraza. Original oil paintings by the best Disney artists in the World are few and far between and when it comes to Mike’s oils they are beyond rare. The few he has made in the past have almost exclusively been offered (and sold) at the D23 conventions, making this a truly rare opportunity to acquire an exquisite centterpiece for your Ducktales, Disney or fine art collection.

The Temple of Doom

This is hands down one of the finest and most elaborate pastels ever created by Mike Peraza. This epic treasure hunting-themed artwork draws inspiration from sources such as the Indiana Jones movie series and pays tribute to Carl Barks who created Scrooge and the Junior Woodchucks featured in this pastel (and who coincidentally also inspired a certain scene in the first Indiana Jones movie featuring a very large boulder chasing the protagonist). In addition it is easy to see the references to the original Ducktales series which Mike also helped create (and which were based on Carl Barks’ stories). If you are a fan of Indiana Jones, Ducktales and/or Carl Barks, this piece would certainly be the obvious treasure gem of your art collection. This masterpiece is professionally framed in the trademarked exclusive Gallery Disneyana+ gold frame to a total size of approx. 55 x 42 cm and is of course hand-signed. Getting hold of original art by Mike Peraza is very hard to say the least and you would be hard pressed finding a work by this living Disney legend that can compete with the one we are offering here.
