Jason deCaires Taylor is a sculptor, environmentalist and professional underwater photographer. Bon 1974, Taylor graduated from the London Institute of Arts in 1998 with a BA Honours in Sculpture. His permanent site-specific sculptural works span oceans and seas across the world. His projects are predominately exhibited underwater in submerged and tidal marine environments, exploring modern themes of conservation and environmental activism; Over the past 14 years, Taylor has been one of the first to consider the underwater realm as a public art space and has created numerous large-scale underwater “Museums” and “Sculpture Parks”, producing collections of over a 1000 life-size public works, which are visited by thousands of visitors each week.
A prolific sculptor, he became the first of a new generation of artists to shift the concepts of the Land art movement into the realm of the marine environment. He gained international notoriety in 2006 with the creation of the world’s first underwater sculpture park, situated off the west coast of Grenada in the West Indies. Now listed as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic.
Other major projects include Museo Atlantico (Spain), The Rising Tide (Thames, London) Ocean Atlas (Bahamas), MUSA (Mexico), Nexus (Norway), Coralarium (Maldives) and MOUA, Museum of Underwater Art (Australia),
