Daichi Fujita

Daichi Fujita, a young Japanese artist, won the opportunity to dive aboard the ROV Hyper Dolphin in Kagoshima Bay, the shallowest habitat of vestimentiferan tubeworms known to exist. Daichi’s painting, The Deep-Sea Research Party, was selected from hundreds of entries for an art contest. The prize covered the travel costs for this young artist and a parent to see a place few will ever have the opportunity to visit.
