Jason de Caires Taylor, the inventor of the world’s first underwater sculpture park, has increased worldwide distinguishment for his special work. His sculptures highlight environmental procedures whilst investigating the complicated connections between current art and the environment.
Around 470 startling figures will blow your mind.
Jason de Caires Taylor is an internationally acclaimed sculptor who makes underwater living establishments, offering viewers, vaporous experiences and brief glints of an alternate world where art is created from the impacts of nature on the endeavors of man.
The idea was to create an artificial reef featuring sculptures made from marine concrete.
