Jason de Caires Taylor is an artist apart. Combining his love of the ocean with his art, Taylor is able to produce haunting, and sometimes slightly creepy underwater tableaus. Taylor graduated in 1998 from the London Institute of Arts and then became a dive instructor and an accomplished underwater photographer.
He created his first underwater sculpture park in 2006 off the coast of Grenada in the West Indies it is now listed as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His extraordinary work is meant to provide not only an incredible installation, but also a home for the creatures of the sea which transform and assimilate his works into reefs that turn human intervention into a positive.
He hopes to promote marine conservation and a better understanding of marine ecosystems through his works.
