Guy Harvey, Ph.D., world-renowned artist, scientist, conservationist and entrepreneur, widely recognized today as the world’s finest marine wildlife artist who combines his unique artistic talents with his background as a marine biologist to create marine wildlife art with an unmatched authenticity and visual appeal, will participate in a meet & greet at the Guy Harvey booth at the 60th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, where Guy launched his business 33 years ago.
Guy Harvey, Inc. is the show’s official merchandise partner this year.
Over the years, Dr. Harvey has become a popular celebrity. Fans line up to meet him and get his autograph wherever he goes and his social media properties combine for 1 million+ followers.
Dr. Harvey’s art can be found on a wide variety of clothing and gift items, with a portion of all proceeds benefitting the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, which conducts scientific research and hosts educational programs aimed at conserving the marine environment, helping to ensure that future generations can enjoy and benefit from a naturally balanced ocean ecosystem.
Annual fees from the Guy Harvey specialty license plate, available since 2010, benefit the GHOF to fund marine-related scientific research, including research of free-ranging pelagic marine species that inhabit, use or migrate through Florida waters, conservation initiatives, and education and public outreach programs for school-aged children in the state.
His largest canvas to date adorns the hull of the newest Norwegian Cruise Line ship Escape. The 1,000+ foot long ship features Guy Harvey artwork along the hull and the entire ship is Guy Harvey themed throughout. Dr. Harvey’s murals also can be found at SeaWorld parks, Fort Lauderdale International Airport and Nova Southeastern University.
