Underwater Sculpture Parks by Jason deCaires Taylor

Jason deCaires Taylor is a diving instructor and sculptor born in Europe and raised in Asia, where he spent much of his early childhood exploring the coral reefs of Malaysia. By combining his two passions, in 2006, artist created the world’s first underwater sculpture park, the inspiring stone and sand scenes—sculptures that happen to aid in promoting future ecological sustainment.

Taylor’s art is like no other, a paradox of creation, constructed to be assimilated by the ocean and transformed from inert objects into living breathing coral reefs, portraying human intervention as both positive and life-encouraging. 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.

Located off the coast of Grenada Jason’s underwater sculpture park is now listed as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. Also, his latest creation, MUSA,  a monumental museum with a collection of over 500 of his sculptural works was described by Forbes as one of the world’s most unique travel destinations. What makes these sculpture parks really unique, is a wide range of references from today’s modern world such as bankers or guy watching TV while eating a hamburger. Not in vain, Jason seek to encourage environmental awareness and investigate our social change with these incredible underwater sculpture parks.

The collection below consists of the most beautiful sculptures from all Jason’s underwater sculpture parks.
