Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori brings art to life

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted  layer by layer,the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. You will all enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it’s such an odd process that results in something that’s both a painting and sculptural.

Fukahori has become widely known for his depiction of aquatic life painted with acrylic within layers of resin, most frequently the forms of goldfish as they swim through small wooden boxes or inside bamboo hats.

Fukahori just closed an exhibition at ICN Gallery in London titled Goldfish Salvation.

Here are some pictures of his and a video of Fukahori bringing Goldfish to life.
