Disney is hosting an art exhibition to celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary with artwork reimagining our favourite mouse.

Jimmy C said: “The legacy of Mickey Mouse has been an inspiration not only to my own creativity but also to the world’s. Celebrating his renowned influence through a variety of art mediums is a perfect fit, and it’s been a privilege to be involved in the exhibition”.
