About Jason DeCaires Taylor

Born in 1974 to an English father and Guyanese mother. Educated at the London Institute of Arts and graduated with a BA Honours degree in Sculpture. Taylor is also a fully qualified diving instructor, underwater naturalist and award winning underwater photographer.

In 2006, Taylor founded and created the world’s first underwater sculpture park off the coast of Grenada in the West Indies. 5 years later National Geographic now lists it as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World. His second project MUSA was also subsequently described by Forbes in 2011 as one of the world’s most unique travel destinations. Both these ambitious, permanent public works have a practical, functional aspect, facilitating positive interactions between people and fragile underwater habitats while at the same relieving pressure on natural resources.

Numerous publications and documentaries have featured his extraordinary work, including the BBC, CNN, USA Today, The Guardian, Vogue, New Scientist and the Discovery Channel. His pioneering public art projects are not only examples of successful marine conservation, but inspirational works of art that seek to encourage environmental awareness, instigate social change and lead us to appreciate the breathtaking natural beauty of the underwater world.
