white rock whaling wall


One of my favorite local murals is this whale mural in White Rock, seen on Johnston Road as you head toward the beach.

A little sleuthing on the internet has netted me some interesting info about it.

The 21 metre long mural of three life-size gray whales was painted by Wyland, in September of 1984. At the time he was a 28 year old California artist. It was the fourth of Wyland's "whaling walls." In February this year he completed number 95 in Key Largo.

Watch him paint the Key Largo wall on YouTube.
