The Water Gallery concept focuses on tying beauty, eco-friendliness, and environmental awareness together in a unique way. Water Gallery’s premium Italian Rocco Bormioli swing-top glass water bottles feature a 22k gold frame through which artwork is viewed. Drew Brophy’s colorful and unique art will not only be showcased on the above-mentioned original Water Gallery style bottles, but will be the inaugural art featured on Water Gallery’s new glass drinkware line, which will include limited edition water drinking glasses, glass coffee mugs, beer mugs, pint glasses, and two different sizes of shot-style glasses.
Each Water Gallery bottle and various glass items are decorated locally in California, utilizing a highly detailed, hands-on production process.

Laskan goes on to say, "Our goal is to expand people’s awareness of our natural environment and to look at how we can reduce our impact while enhancing the beauty in our lives.“
About Drew Brophy
Drew Brophy has been a professional surf artist for over 25 years. He says of his profession, “It’s my job to make things look cool.” An avid big wave surfer and world traveler, Drew’s career exploded in the late 1990’s when he began painting his edgy artwork onto surfboards. Now his art is printed on hundreds of products and his original artwork is collected worldwide. Drew’s love of surfing has led him down a path of studying weather, its effect on waves, and how the sun influences earth. This has all led to a deep interest in physics and how it all interconnects. Drew has studied physics extensively and it has influenced his artwork. As such, his distinctive art style has evolved to include sacred geometry in an effort to decode the knowledge that ancient civilizations left for us. Drew wants to share with the world the message that everything is energy and we are all connected. He strives to create art images that help people understand the true meaning of life, that life is meant to be enjoyed. Learn more at www.drewbrophy.com.
