Sunday Evening Art Gallery Blog — Riusuke Fukahori

Riusuke Fukahori is known best for his resin-based studies of Japanese goldfish.

Riusuke Fukahori does it so realistically you never imagine that this is just his 3D art form of goldfish, captured as if time stood still.

Fukahori alternates between pouring resin into a vessel and painting goldfish with acrylic paint, giving the resulting work a three-dimensional optical effect.

Most of his works are contained in conventional household items, such as cups and bowls.

The artist was initially attracted to his goldfish because he admired them and viewed their domestication as a metaphor for the stifling conditions of modern life.

Though he infamously keeps dozens of fish around his studio for observation, Fukahori prefers to execute his works from his impressions and memories, and depicts both existing species of fish and invented hybrids.

As  Fukahori states, “I didn’t invent resin and not the first to use resin. I am not a resin artist. I am a goldfish artist.”

And as one can see, Riusuke Fukahori does so in exquisite beauty and detail.
