Inspired by Fukahori, Singaporean artist Keng Lye, too, started creating a series of intricate 3-D painting masterpieces which he has named “Alive Without Breath.” See his lifelike paintings after the break!
Now internationally famous, Riusuke Fukahori’s claim to fame is his unique style of creating extremely realistic goldfish paintings by using acrylic paint on layers upon layers of clear resin, resulting in 3-D paintings that are so real it looks as if the little fishes froze in time.
Artists are constantly inspired by sights and sounds around them, as Fukahori got inspired by his pet goldfish. His stunning art in turn became an inspiration to Keng Lye, an artist based in Singapore. Applying the techniques made famous by Fukahori, Keng Lye has expanded the possibilities of the art and created not just 3-D paintings of fishes, but other aquatic animals such as octopus, shrimp and terrapins.
How he manages to create the parts that seem to be above “water” level boggles me to no end. Although Keng Lye has yet to gain worldwide acclaim comparable to Riusuke Fukahori, his artwork definitely matches up to that of the goldfish master, at least in the eyes of this artistically challenged writer.
