(TruthSeekerDaily) Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really 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.

He creates these hyper-realistic sculptures of swimming
goldfish by a slow and meticulous process..

First, he pours a layer of resin, lets it dry, and then paints a small portion
of the fish on top it, lets it dry, and then pours another layer of resin.

This process is carefully repeated until he makes a three-dimensional representation of a goldfish.

As he states, “I didn’t invent resin and not the first to use resin. I am not a resin artist. I am a goldfish artist. I think it’s obvious which pieces are Riusuke Fukahori pieces because the imitators use the wrong containers. They will never understand goldfish the way I do. They are only copying the craft, not the soul.”
