Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it’s such an odd process that results in something that’s both a painting and sculptural. Wonderful.

Gyotaku: Japan’s Old School Fishy Prints

Nowadays just about every phone is also a camera and a camcorder, so keeping a record of your latest catch is a trivial matter – and of course you’d want to, if only to avoid having to insist “I swear it was this big!” To disbelieving friends and family. But way back in the day there was no such technology available, so the Japanese had to get creative – and lo, gyotaku was born. The oldest known gyotaku print is that of a carp, and is from 1839. Gyotaku (魚拓) or “fish rubbing” dates back to at least the Tempou era, and is still in practice today. The two main variants, namely the direct and indirect methods, both use inks to transfer the likeness of the fish to a sheet of paper or cloth.

Mineo Yamamoto has been a gyotaku artist since 1973, and a great proponent of the indirect method. As you might have guessed, a skilled gyotaku artist can produce incredibly detailed and lifelike images, especially if colored inks are used. Header image. Микро дома.

Top sights of kyoto. When people first consider the idea of a holiday in Japan, their thoughts usually turn to Tokyo.

top sights of kyoto

Now, there’s nothing wrong with Tokyo – its soaring skyscrapers perfectly contrasting with its sombre temples – but there is a lot more to Japan than the bright lights of its world famous capital. Take Kyoto, for example. The city is the historical and cultural capital of Japan – a fine mix of urban sprawl and cultural gems. Indeed, Kyoto was home to the Japanese Imperial family from 794 all the way up to 1868 when the Emperor decided to relocate to Tokyo. Kyoto is one of the few major Japanese cities to avoid the destruction of aerial raids during World War 2, and aside from anything else that makes it a fascinating part of any holiday in Japan. How much time you wish to spend in this amazing city is mainly down to your tastes in sightseeing.
