Description

This week on the Top Artist Podcast, we talk with sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor about his incredible work and the impact his pieces have on their local environment. Trained at the London Institute of Art, deCaires Taylor uses his sculptures to rebuilt natural habitats and mitigate damage caused by tourism to at-risk underwater areas. His large body of work spans from additions to the Great Barrier Reef to entire underwater museums carefully considered to benefit the local ecology.
