Idea Code 20520


Riusuke Fukahori is known for his prolonged, meditative process of painting exceptionally lifelike goldfish in layers of acrylic resin, which he often situates in wooden boxes or ceramic bowls. This book presents numerous examples of his fascinating art together with a selection of other Japanese artists whose work centres around the theme of the goldfish. From traditional drawings and paintings to expressive abstraction and pop cultural interpretations, the many varieties of this ornamental fish provide a rich source of inspiration for more than fifteen contemporary artists in this eye-popping collection. Published in conjunction with the travelling exhibition ‘Kingyo Bishow 2020’ in Japan.
