Goldfish Salvation by Riusuke Fukahori

One of the coolest things I've seen in a while is this artist's technique of painting on layers of poured acrylic resin. The result is incredible depth and 3D quality to his paintings of goldfish.

From the gallery website:
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.
