About Wyland

Experience the wonder of life in the sea through the eyes of Wyland, the most influential marine artist of our time.

The work of this celebrated painter, sculptor, write, underwater photographer, and muralist is now seen by an estimated one billion people throughout the world every year. Since 1981, he has painted more than 88 monumental marine life murals, including "Planet Ocean", which was named the largest mural in the world in 1992 by the Guiness Book of World Records. He is also the founder of the Wyland Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the world's oceans.

Wyland is committed to bridging the worlds of marine science and art -- a philosophy hailed by world-renowned ocean scientists such as Dr. Robert Bailard, Dr. Sylvia A. Earle and Dr. Roger Payne. He firmly believes that "if people see the beauty in nature, they will work to preserve it before it's too late."

In 1998, the United Nations proclaimed Wyland the official artist for the "Internations Year of the Ocean" and issued a commemorative stamp in his honor. Today his art is found in museums, galleries, public walls, and in many public and private collections throughout the world.
