Jason DeCaires Taylor is an English sculptor specializing in the creation of underwater sculptures, which over time develop into artificial coral reefs. Taylor integrates his skills as a conservationist, underwater photographer and scuba diving instructor to produce unique installations that encourage the habitation and growth of corals and marine life. Overtime the sculptures become even more esthetically pleasing due to growth and coloring.
