Introducing Water Gallery's inaugural artist, Wyland! In his early days on the art scene in the 1980s, Wyland started catching people's attention with his amazing whale walls and his popularity grew exponentially from there. His name and the Wyland Foundation (created in 1993) have risen to the forefront of the environmental awareness realm and his stunning marine-life paintings, sculptures, whale walls, and murals are much beloved by people all over the world. As an educator, Wyland has worked tirelessly to spread his message among all age groups of living an environmentally-friendly lifestyle, ocean conservation, and taking personal responsibility for the natural world around us.
We could not think of a more fitting artist to showcase on the first editions of our Water Gallery glass water bottles. We share many of the same values as Wyland, from environmental concerns to marine-life awareness, and of course we also recognize the sheer beauty and vibrance of his exquisite artistic images. Our goal has always been to create an eco-friendly piece of art that can be used as a functional vessel or a unique gift, and with Wyland as our first artist, we feel that we have a winning combination. We are very proud to have teamed up with Wyland to give his fan-base and our growing base of Water Gallery fans a unique and exciting way to own a piece of Wyland's art: by displaying it on a premium refillable glass water bottle that can be reused over and over again.
