When Riuske Fukahori faced difficulty as an artist, he was inspired by his pet goldfish and reached a turning point in his career. Because of this lucky incident, he named his series: Goldfish Salvation.

Riusuke Fukahori is a Japanese artist who focus on painting goldfish in a unique style. The process of creating 3-dimensional paintings shows how passionate he is about the small reddish-golden fish that are popular in ponds and aquariums. He pours layers of resin into a container, then he paints goldfishes on top with acrylic paints, and lets it dry and applies more layers. After patiently repeating the process over and over, like magic, 3-dimensional goldfishes emerge.

Solo exhibitions of his work have been held twice at INC gallery in London. Check out the promotion video below to witness Fukahori’s process from ICN gallery.
