These pictures are created using a similar method to 3D printing, by building them up layer upon layer.

The 3D printing craze has spread to the art world, with Riusuke Fukahori‘s amazing goldfish “sculptures,” created by hand using acrylic and clear resin. The Japanese artist builds up the image of each fish by adding layer upon layer of paint. This is a similar method to how a 3D printer creates an object.

As each layer of acrylic is applied, the transparent plastic resin is poured into the container to cover it. This eventually results in a three dimensional painted sculpture of lifelike fish, that look like they’re in water. Click through the gallery below to see some of the artist’s works from his London debut exhibition “Goldfish Salvation” at the ICN gallery, and watch this video to see him in action:
