Victor Douieb, sculptor and conservationist

Presenting Organization

New England Aquarium



Known more for promoting the wildlife and sea life conservation, Parisian sculptor Victor Douieb is heralding the opposite for one species in particular. In the Atlantic and Caribbean, the ever increasing populations of the voracious non-native lionfish are decimating entire ecosystems in their wake. The artist, who's created several sculptures of the lionfish including a version in solid 18 karat gold, will describe aspects of this seemingly unstoppable predator along with measures being taken to abate its expanding reign. His presentation will also detail the process of turning his passion for animals and sea life in bronze and stainless steel works of art.
