Breathtaking 3D Goldfish Paintings by R. Fukahori

It’s hard to believe, but these lively goldfish swimming in the bowls are not real at all! A Japanese artist named Riusuke Fukahori is painting these incredibly realistic three-dimensional goldfish using acrylic paint layered over clear resin. 
Just like 3D printer[1], the artists paints the fish layer by layer, with the sandwiched slices revealing slight more about each creature.
When struggling with artistic vision, Fukahori’s pet goldfish became his inspiration and ever since his passion and lifelong theme. His unique style of painting uses acrylic on clear resin which is poured into containers, resulting in a three-dimensional appearance and lifelike vitality. This exhibition features twenty new painting works by this leading Japanese contemporary artist.”[2]

Riusuke Fukahori’s exhibition called “Goldfish Salvation” was recently on show at the ICN Gallery in London.

Minimiam: Little People in the World of Food

Do you remember the little people from the Tiny Street Art Project by Slinkachu? Now take these tiny guys to the beautiful Foodscapes by Carl Warner and you’ll get something similar to what you’re about to see.

Minimiam (meaning “Mini Yum”) is a creative union of husband and wife who create tiny worlds of food with their little people doing their little chores here. Akiko Ida is Japanese and Pierre Javelle is French. They met studying photography at the Paris “Arts Decoratifs” art school.

Since childhood, Akiko has always been attracted to the world of gastronomy. As a child, she elaborated and baked different sorts of bread which she subsequently photographed and classified in a notebook. At the same time, she invented tiny characters that filled entire pages of her journal. Akiko became a renowned Food Photographer, and has already taken part in more than 30 cookbooks.

Piere hails from Burgundy. He grew up on a comics diet. Attracted by drawing, illustrations and photography, art school was his refuge. The likes of Doisneau and Cartier-Bresson were major influences in his choice of photography as a medium.
