Jason deCaires Taylor’s SeaPeople

At the bottom of the sea, you will find Jason deCaires Taylor’s sculptures. Beautiful and constantly developing as they grow artificial reefs. The scuba-diving British sculptor who trained at the Camberwell College of Art, created the figures out of a special cement with a neutral PH, which attracts corals to grow on them. Submerging 400 life-sized sculptures of people for his piece entitled “La Evolución Silenciosa” (The Silent Evolution), a Volkswagen entitled “Anthropocene” and a man watching television with a burger and fries entitled “Inercia” (Inertia). “In a gallery, you get one perspective,” says deCaires Taylor. “Under water, you can fly over the sculptures, go between them.” Incredible!
