Riusuke Fukahori is a Nagoya-born contemporary artist who focuses on one specific subject matter in his work: goldfish. Fukahori is well-known for his use of resin and paint to make ultra-realistic 3D creations, and a special exhibition taking place at the Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum explores these unique pieces.

The admission price to the event has not yet been determined; please visit the official website for pricing closer to the commencement of the exhibition.

Getting there

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

I saw some of his work at a display in Kashiwa City some years ago.

I always worry if fish is fine being the object of art...

Reminds me of some of the rinpa art in Kyoto! Amazing how it makes you look at everyday objects like fish so differently. https://en.japantravel.com/kyoto/hosomi-museum/1821
