Jason deCaires Taylor
Jason deCaires Taylor grew up in Europe and Asia, and spent much of his time in the water exploring the reefs of Malaysia. Taylor went on to graduate from the London Institute of Art. Blending his two passions together has allowed Taylor to create some of the most unusual art in the world.
In 2006 Taylor founded the first underwater sculpture park off the coast of Grenada in the West Indies. It is now listed as one of the 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His latest sculptural works can be found submerged off the coast of Cancún, Mexico, at the MUSA (Museo Subacuatico de Arte).
In his lecture, Taylor will share his experiences creating his sculptures, installing them underwater, and what the effect on tourism in the area has been. Visitors to the Aquarium of the Pacific can view an exhibition of his latest sculptural works starting April 30, 2014, through June 30, 2014.
