Muralists naturally think big. But Wyland'arguably the world's best-known marine painter, whose images span thousands of square feet of walls, canvases, and sculpted forms'makes an impact far beyond the art world. Wyland combines his incredible talents with those of a dedicated team of educators, scientists, and environmentalists to truly change the way we view the planet.Wyland: 25 Years at Seaopens the door to Wyland's fascinating world of art and its power to make a difference in the earth's future. Through its pages we experience the wonder of nature as seen through the eyes of this extraordinary artist, while deepening our understanding of the importance of our environment and all creatures that share it. Like an artist's palette, this book mixes Wyland's breathtaking work with a narrative that reveals the man's personal world and his commitment to the earth.Woven throughout the whales, sea turtles, and ocean waves is the absorbing story of how Wyland grew from his Detroit roots to become a successful fine artist to his mission today of delivering a lasting, worldwide message of concern, hope, and needed action.
Wyland is the world's premier marine life artist. Through sculpture, painting, photography, and education, Wyland encourages responsible stewardship of our world's oceans and marine life. His work includes eight previous books, more than 90 Whaling Wall murals, the nonprofit Wyland Foundation, and the Wyland Ocean Challenge, an arts and science curriculum intended to get children involved in saving our water. Wyland calls Laguna Beach, Calif., home.
