From his studios in Melbourne, Australia, Chierchia Gerardo crafts his little works of 3D wonders. He gradually adds clear resin upon clear resin, painting with acrylic on each layer to meticulously build up art pieces with incredible perception of depth and detail.
Sound familiar? Some of you may have read about the impressive art of Japanese 3D goldfish artist Riusuke Fukahori, who appears to have served as inspiration for Gerardo. Fukahori is a true master of this fascinating artistic technique and subject matter.
Perhaps not as refined as Fukahori, Gerardo is extremely gifted in his own right. Furthermore, Gerardo’s work is much more accessible. He sells his art pieces for as little as $30 to over $1,000. For their beauty and the amount of work it takes to create art using this medium, it’s a small price to pay to own something so lovely and unique.
Visit his website, GoldfishInspiration.com, to view more of his art and to purchase one of his works. Here’s a small sampling from this prolific artist. Now tell me you don’t want one of these! (FYI: These pieces are all sold, but more art is available for sale at Gerardo’s web shop)
