I hardly believed this when I saw it, but these are not photographs of goldfish in wooden bowls. These are 3-dimensional paintings by Riusuke Fukahori created by painting multiple layers and then sandwiching them in between resin. Not so much a fan of the resin part, but my god, these are amazing works of art. I can easily see how this translates into encaustic. Watch the video after the jump to fully appreciate how Fukahori creates them.
