The project began in November 2009 with the placement of 100 statues in shallow waters of the Cancún National Marine Park and will eventually 'house' 400 works by artist Jason DeCaires Taylor.
As creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park, Jason DeCaires Taylor has gained international accolades for his work. His sculptures highlight ecological processes and delve with the intricate relationship between modern art and the environment. By using sculptures to create artificial reefs, the artist underlines our need to understand and protect the natural world.
