Norwegian Escape’s Hull Art Comes To Life
Marine wildlife artist Guy Harvey laid eyes upon his largest canvas to date for the 1 st time this week – the hull artwork on the new Norwegian Escape, debuting this November in Miami.The ship yard visit took place as Harvey’s artwork is now beginning to take shape, bringing to life his perspective of the spectacular Caribbean marine life on the expansive canvas of Norwegian Escape’s hull.
Spanning more than 1,000 ft in length from bow to stern, the custom-designed artwork features Harvey’s signature sailfish as well as sea life including sting rays, sea turtles, whale sharks and a variety of tropical fish.
“I’m so proud to showcase the incredible marine life of the Caribbean on the largest canvas a human could possibly paint,” said Dr. Guy Harvey. “After weeks of work, the artisans at Meyer Werft have done an incredible job of recreating my art on such a vast format. I’m overjoyed at the level of detail that has been achieved and I can't wait to see Norwegian Escape in her element out on the ocean.”
