Gateway to the Ocean

Lanzarote, 2019

In 2016 the artist Jason deCaires Taylor created a masterpiece of underwater art, entitled Museo Atlantico. The Museo Atlantico is designed ultimately to promote marine conservation and is comprised of life size sculptures, based on local residents, which in years to come will become covered in coral.

Ever curious, I decided to explore this unique place not only as a diver, but also as an artist.  However this time I set myself the challenge of creating two paintings in a single dive.  With the expert assistance of Rubicon Diving Centre, I was able to complete this challenge and gain a whole new inspiration, as well as a greater understanding of the delicate nature of the underwater ecosystem.
