Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori, best known for her three-dimensional goldfish paintings in layers of poured resin (and one of our top 10 cutting-edge artists of the 21st century) is a gifted painter whether it's on a three- or two-dimensional platform. As part of his Goldfish Salvation exhibit at ICN gallery in London back in 2011, the artist performed his skilled process for creating a large-scale painting of a goldfish.
At first, Fukahori begins with a broad paintbrush to form the body of his subject. Like his resin sculptures, he uses a layering technique to capture the multitude of colors and texture in the glimmering fish's body. Once he has completed this, Fukahori proceeds to drop the brush and opt for a broom. The impressive performance, as can be seen in full in the video below, shows the artist dipping the large broom in a vat of paint and manipulating the dripping orange dye in flowing patterns. Fukahori engages in a spectacular dance as he guides the bristled broom across the white floor to finalize his goldfish.
