Jason DeCaires Taylor is a sculptor, environmentalist and professional underwater photographer. Born in 1974 to an English father and Guyanese mother, Taylor graduated from the London Institute of Arts in 1998 with a BA Honours in Sculpture.
DeCaires Taylor is famously known for his sculpturing, spanning several continents and predominately exploring submerged and tidal marine environments. He spent much of his early childhood exploring the coral reefs of Malaysia, becoming immersed in the underwater world and the environment, influencing his work to date. Jason founded and created the world’s first underwater sculpture park (which is now listed as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic) and an underwater museum with over 850 life size submerged sculptures.
As well as being a sculptor, Jason is also an award winning underwater photographer, famous for his dramatic images, which capture the metamorphosing effects of the ocean on his evolving sculptures.
