Christopher Jobson writes on the colossal art and design site Colossal:

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it’s such an odd process that results in something that’s both a painting and sculptural. Wonderful.

    This is some beautiful work. I have to say that it’s much better looking than any fishing lure I have ever aquired. I mean that as a compliment, of course. The details are amazing.
