It’s hard to believe, but these lively goldfish swimming in the bowls are not real at all! A Japanese artist named Riusuke Fukahori is painting these incredibly realistic three-dimensional goldfish using acrylic paint layered over clear resin. Just like 3D printer, the artists paints the fish layer by layer, with the sandwiched slices revealing slight more about each creature.
“When struggling with artistic vision, Fukahori’s pet goldfish became his inspiration and ever since his passion and lifelong theme.

This exhibition features twenty new painting works by this leading Japanese contemporary artist.”
Riusuke Fukahori’s exhibition called “Goldfish Salvation” was recently on show at the ICN Gallery in London.
