At first glance, you would think its real fish swimming peacefully in a little tank. Sometimes looks be deceiving, as they say. Now look again closely because it’s not. 

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints incredibly realistic three-dimensional goldfish embedded in layers of transparent resin. 

Painting and sculpture —that’s the art combination Riusuke Fukahori’s work could best be described. By using acrylic paint and a complex process involving layers of cast resin, this talented artist creates his “living masterpieces”. Patiently he built his fish, layer by layer, adding transparent resin to create a realistic three-dimension effect. Despite the tendious and complex nature of the artistic process, the end results are highly dynamic, capturing the animated life of the fish.

Cast in a variety of vessels, from large sushi vessels, to small bowls and even a hollow bamboo stick, Riusuke’s goldfish look so shockingly real it’s hard to believe they started out as abstract color stains. Do me and you a favor and watch the video at the bottom to get an idea of how these incredible works of art come to be. We’ve had some mind-blowing photo-realistic artworks on Oddity Central, but Riusuke Fukahori’s are in a league of their own.
