5.0
#5 of 9 in Museums in Carmel
Studied at the prestigious Sir Henry Doulton School of Sculpture, which served as a catalyst for a remarkable career in portrait sculpture. The sculptor’s accomplishments in the field were recognized when he was elected Vice President of the Society of Portrait Sculptor.

Whyte’s accomplishments as a portrait sculptor have made him sought after for public memorials and installations both in England and throughout the United States with subjects ranging from local miners, to soldiers and fire fighters. He is credited with more than 40 life size and large bronze figures in Britain and the United States including The Silverdale Mining Memorial; The Lance Sergeant Jack Baskeyfield VC Tribute; The Spirit of 1948; the Dr. John Roberts Monument; the sixteen figure-multi-million dollar National Military Tribute to Bob Hope for San Diego; two over life-size monuments to Dr. Martin Luther King, and a twice life size portrait figure of 1957 Heisman Trophy Winner John David Crow for Texas A&M at College Station. In May 2011, the San Diego Sheriffs Department unveiled Whyte’s four figure tribute to the fallen deputies of the Sheriffs department. The 26th February 2014, saw the unveiling of nine 110% life size bronze figures for the Cannery Row Monument, Monterey, CA., a life size (11ft) Jumbo the Elephant for Tufts University, MA and in 2014 installed the largest single bronze sculpture for any College/University anywhere, the $1.7M Aggie War Hymn Monument for Texas A&M.

Whyte was awarded the Sports Artist of the Year, in 2016 by The United States Academy of Sports and The American Sport Art Museum & Archives. Also in 2016 The Smithsonian Institute chose his portrait bust of US Congressman John Conyers for National Portrait Gallery's permanent collection.



Whyte’s edition work features the drama and evocativeness of his monuments combined with a more personal point of view.

Whyte works in an open studio gallery in the historic artist community of Carmel, California.
