Wyland is widely recognized for his 91 towering marine life murals in 69 cities on four continents.
A multi-talented painter, sculptor, diver, author, and educator, he has hosted his own show on TV’s “Animal Planet,” painted the world’s largest mural on the Long Beach Convention Center, provided community outreach on conservation issues to more than 1,000,000 children, and currently writes a column on children and has authored 10 best selling books.
His non-profit, 501(c)(3) Wyland foundation has actively supported educational and scientific research organizations such as the JASON Project with Dr. Robert Ballard and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, Calif. In 1998, his art was chosen for the "first day of issue" envelope for the United Nation's "International Year of the Ocean" stamps. Today Wyland’s art is seen by more than one billion people a year in museums, galleries, public murals, and public and private collections throughout the world.
