Collection: Robert Lyn Nelson Artist Biography and Art Gallery Collection

Robert Lyn Nelson is an American Artist who captivates and dazzles audiences worldwide with his incredible use of color and depth. Besides being an artist, Nelson is also a world renowned artist and environmentalist who creates blissful images of marine life. A southern California native born in 1955, Nelson proved to be a gifted artist from the start, able to create artwork at the age of three that was impressive to say the least. By the time he was thirteen, Nelson was already being offered scholarships by local colleges in and around the San Bernardino county where he lived and attended high school. At fifteen, the very first public exhibition of his work came close to being completely sold out. Two years later he had his first one-man show. Robert Lyn Nelson is widely regarded as one the founding father of the Modern Marine Art Movement, taking the world by storm in the 1970's with his work. His deeply detailed paintings are bursting with color and a sense of magic and movement, bringing to life a variety of figures, subjects and images - most notably the amazing underwater universe of our oceans. As a diver and deeply committed conservationist, Nelson has made quite an impact in raising awareness of the world we live in, being named one of the nation's first "Environmental Heroes" in 1997 by then-Vice President Al Gore. The many avid collectors of Nelson's work comprise a Who's Who list of US presidents, movie industry big-wigs and rock n' rollers, including the Bush and Kennedy families, James Cameron and the Beach Boys, just to name a few. Primarily based in Hawaii these days, Robert Lyn Nelson continues to create marine masterpieces and support a long list of charities and environmental causes.
