Street Murals by Wyland seen at 1100 North Harbor Dr., Redondo Beach, CA, Redondo Beach - Whaling Wall Number 31
Renowned marine life artist Wyland (Robert Wyland) changed the way people think about our environment when he started painting life-size whales on the sides of buildings in the 1980s. He's been doing them every since, and this one in Redondo Beach, "Whaling Wall Number 31,“ was completed in just 11 days. The giant mural of migrating whales includes nine life-size gray whales, the artist's first blue whale (100 feet long), plus bottlenose dolphins and kelp forests 70 feet high. Southern California Edison installed halogen lighting so the painting also can be appreciated at night.

"“Renowned marine life artist Wyland (Robert Wyland )changed the way people think about our environment when he started painting life-size whales on the sides of buildings in the 1980s. Wyland always thought big. And he never stopped.

Today, the Wyland name has become synonymous with the new generation of awareness about environmental conservation. Through his unique marine life paintings, sculptures, and photography, Wyland has inspired a generation about the importance of marine life conservation.

The multi-faceted artist, scuba diver, educator, and explorer has hosted several television programs, including, “Wyland’s Ocean World” series on the Discovery Channel’s Animal Planet Network, “Wyland: A Brush With Giants” and “Wyland’s Art Studio,” a series for national public television. His mission of engaging people through nature-themed art and a more environmentally friendly lifestyle has led to strategic alliances with such notable organizations as the United States Olympic Team, United Nation Environment Program, and Walt Disney Studios, to name a few.

The enormous extent of Wyland public artworks (it is estimated that his murals are viewed by more than a billion people every year), his award-winning art galleries, and community service projects have made him one of the most recognized and beloved artists in the nation.He is considered one of the most influential artists of the 21st Century, with artwork in museums, corporate collections, and private homes in more than one hundred countries.”"
