If you've ever watched a classic Disney animated film, you might know Glen Keane. The son of Bil Keane, creator of Family Cirus, Keane began drawing at an early age, and went on to animate iconic films such as The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Pochahontas, Beauty and the Beast, and most recently, Tangled. That's just a shortlist of the work under Keane's belt, but while the artist has explored with computer animation, he explores a new style of artwork through virtual reality.

It's hard not to tear up at the animator's joy when he brings the Beast, and later Ariel, to life all around him. Check out the video below to watch Keane's experience and dive into the artwork yourself.

Walking through the artwork with Keane -- quite literally -- is a new experience, even when watching it on the flatscreen of your desktop or mobile phone. As VR tech is pushed forward to apply to several different genres, art and creativity follows suit. If you could draw in midair and fill the space around you with art, what would you create?
