Artist a day, Jason de Caires Taylor

Another artist found through artist a day

This artist is absolutely fantastic! He creates underwater sculptures and then leaves them there until the ocean starts to reclaim them. Its brilliant really, what makes the art of the past so stunning? Their history. Well, it's part of it anyway. Knowing that a work has survived decades of people and war and can still stop viewers in their tracks partly because of what it's been through. What better way to fake history then by making it look aged? And quite frankly, there is no better artist than mother nature when it comes to time and decay.
before Mother Nature

You should definably check out his work.

I can totally foresee a use of these images. Possibly in my design of Into The Woods this spring :). How? I dunno yet...
