Artist Keng Lye whose work we explored earlier this year recently completed a new painting that blends sculpture and layers of acrylic paint to create this near lifelike red octopus. Lye often uses an egg shell to form the body of his cephalopods which then merges seamlessly with alternating layers of resin and acrylic to create an incredible sense of depth and dimensions. If you liked this, also check out the work of Riusuke Fukahori. All photos courtesy the artist. (via My Modern Met)
