Jason deCaires Taylor is an artist and naturalist who creates breath-taking underwater sculptures. Most are to be found in the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park off Grenada, and the Museo Subacuático de Arte (MUSA) off Mexico. The concrete sculptures are designed to encourage the growth of corals, marine plants, sea sponges and sea urchins, allowing them to be transformed over time as they merge with the natural environment. Aside from their astonishing beauty, the works evoke a powerful message about the importance and fragility of the marine world: "artists have a crucial role in engaging communities on an emotional level, where facts, figures and voices fail to reach", says Taylor.
