Gyotaku (gee-oh-tah-koo) is the Japanese art of making fish prints from actual fish on delicate Japanese paper. This art form reproduces the exact features and characteristics of the fish.
The process for gyotaku starts by inking the freshly caught fish with a nontoxic, water-soluble ink, then the delicate Japanese paper is placed on the fish and is hand-rubbed. After removal of the paper, the eye and details are hand-painted bringing the gyotaku to life.
Finally I apply my hanko (signature in Japanese) to complete the artwork.
