The Making of a Whaling Wall.... Day #1

Warning...Lots of photos!!

Wyland, a world renowned marine wildlife artist has been here on Kauai for the past few days to recreate his original Whaling Wall on the old Longs Drug Building.  The original mural had suffered dry rot and needed to be replaced. Wyland offered his time and talent for free to update the wall. 

I watched in awe as the wall came to life.  The famous NaPali Coast and a full moon in the back ground,  a Humpback Whale mom and calf take center stage in his newest creation.  Chances are if you've seen a whale or other marine life on a large canvas (ie: side of a building) its probably Wyland's work.

  1. Love it, but you are making me want to come visit and see this mural in person! Not this year though, but possibly next.
    Sending winter hugs your way and wishing I was enjoying the warm sunshine.

  2. It's one thing to have a vision for something like this but to actually do it seems so impossible! We went to see the Prince mural last summer. Also amazing. It makes walls look better for sure.

  3. Another informative blog… Thank you for sharing it… Best of luck for further endeavor too. For more information visit daily tech studios
