This is your very last chance to catch the best show (IMHO) of 2011.....Riusuke Fukahori manages to create astonishingly real 3D paintings of fish in containers. He uses a unique technique of layering clear resin and painting goldfish on these layers. (Check out the video to see what I mean!)
Artist Riusuke Fukahori's London debut exhibition "Goldfish Salvation" transforms ICN gallery into the world of goldfish. 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.
