Riusuke Fukahori

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori muse is his pet goldfish, which has become the integral theme for his work. Sounds strange I know, but stick with me. On first coming across Fukahori’s work, I assumed his ultra realistic pieces were real, and therefore deeply cruel. Having skimmed the article I realised I was mistaken. Fukahori paints incredibly realistic three-dimensional goldfish using acrylic paint layered over clear resin. The time-consuming technique gives his work incredible depth and realism. Cast in a variety of containers, from large sushi pots, to small bowls and even traditional fairground bags, Riusuke’s goldfish look so shockingly real it’s hard to believe they started out as abstract colour stains.

Fukahori debuted his work in London in January 2012. For those unable to attend, photographer Dominic Alves captured the exhibition. Although you can see the quality of the work through the images below, please take the time to watch the video, which gives an incredible insight into the painstaking technique developed by Fukahori.
