At first glance, this fish seems pretty unremarkable. But upon closer inspection, it gets more interesting, since it’s really part sculpture and part painting. (Actually, inspect it all you like; it’s still going to look like a real fish.) Singapore-based artist Keng Lye manages to give aquatic life just as much grace as nature, and has been creating an entire series in his hybrid art form of resin painting, which accentuates the beauty of colorful sea creatures while also hinting at deeper questions about life and death.

Lye graduated from Singapore’s Nanyang Academy with a diploma in graphic design, and started his own graphic design company back in 1995. He decided to make a life-altering decision to pursue resin art in 2011 – after he discovered a different artist in the same discipline named Risuke Fukahori. Lye’s inspiration for his resin fish series is based on nostalgia; re-creating the aquatic life he used to catch as a kid.

Velella Velella Invade West Coast

Beachgoers on the West Coast were treated to a bizarre sight this summer when thousands of peculiar sea creatures commonly called “by-the-wind sailors” washed ashore. These small, jellyfish-like marine life (scientific name Velella velella) are about 2.75 inches in length and have a bluish tint to their rather translucent form. Due to their unique, sail-like shape, these aptly nicknamed creatures are at the mercy of the sea. When wind conditions change, so do their destinations, which is why so many of the Velella velella have made their way onto the beach this year.
