Recognized as the world's leading marine life artist, Wyland uses his art to
increase awareness about the ocean environment and its inhabitants as
well as the need to preserve and protect that environment.
Both a painter and sculptor, he is best known for the 100 detailed, evocative
life-sized Whaling Wall murals of whales, dolphins, and marine life that
he has painted in cities around the United States and the world.
Wyland Galleries of Key West and Sarasota showcase fine ocean and environmental
art, and contemporary works by leading artists. Wyland's own pieces are highlighted:
majestic whales, playful dolphins, serene manatees, and vibrant reef life
depicted in original oils and watercolors, magnificent bronzes, acrylic sculptures,
a wide range of Lucite sculptures, limited-edition giclees, and unique art
Wyland Galleries' featured artists create their work using a variety of mediums and techniques, and their number continues to grow along with the range of art forms represented. In addition, the galleries offer fine Oggetti glass from Italy's Murano, as well as from Sweden and around the world including the works of master artist Dino Rosin. All artists featured at the galleries are united in their love and respect for the natural world emotions that have fueled Wyland's own art throughout his career.
"I try not only to portray the creatures of the sea," says Wyland, who is the most widely-collected marine life artist in the world, "but also the great spirit they possess. I call what I do the art of saving the oceans."
