No, I bet this isn't anything like the three-dimensional paintings or chalk art that you've seen before. What Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori makes looks so lifelike, it won't only beguile your eyes, but maybe even trick you into finding out if it will move at the slightest touch.
While his chosen materials and medium are pretty much common in arts and crafts, it’s what Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori makes out of them that’s remarkable and astounding. He paints three-dimensional goldfishes on layers of resin, meticulously working on each segment of the fish and pouring more resin on it, until the full, jaw-breaking effect is finished and revealed.
The result? Carefully and masterfully crafted art pieces that are so vivid and lifelike, I bet you’d want to stick your finger in them to see if the water will ripple and the goldfishes in it will move at your touch.
Why goldfishes? According to Riusuke Fukahori’s “Goldfish Salvation” information on International Creative Network (ICN), when he was struggling with his artistic vision, his pet goldfish, which he kept for more than 7 years, became his inspiration and lifelong passion and theme. His works have since been exhibited in Tokyo, Switzerland, Germany, and China.
To fully understand the intensity of Fukahori’s creative process, I urge you to watch the artist at work in the video below:
