What is Gyotaku?

Gyotaku reflects a part of Japanese history. Gyotaku or fish printing, is an ancient, time honored traditional Japanese art form. Over a couple centuries ago, Japanese fisherman would paint their prized catches and cover them with a piece of rice paper and gently rub. Depending on the amount of paint put on the fish, the type of fish and the amount of pressure used while rubbing, it would create an exact detailed imprint of the fish. Once the print is complete, color can be added and detail is carefully added to the eye. It began as a way for Japanese fishermen to commemorate their catch and it still is the most unique, creative and artistic way to display any catch.

Over the years, Gyotaku has grown to be recognized as its own art form. The essence of fish printing is very simple and pure, and this is what drew me to begin my artistic journey. I believe it is my duty to capture each fish's soul, bringing it back to life by getting the most detail possible on each print.
