GYOTAKU ART


Gyotaku (Gyo 'fish' + taku 'rubbing or impression'), is the traditional Japanese art of fish printing and was once used by fishermen in the mid-1800's as a way to measure their catch. The creature (fish, crab, shrimp, octopus, etc.) is painted with acrylic paint, rice paper is laid over it and gently rubbed to capture every detail. The paper is carefully removed leaving the impression of the creature. A high resolution digital image or scan is taken of the rubbing so that it can be reproduced in various formats and sizes. All images are printed on acid free, fine art paper using archival ink.

Rubbings are also available in my handcrafted, reclaimed wood frames at art shows, by special order and in select stores in the southeast. Please check the Art Show Calendar page for our list of upcoming art shows and email us with any special requests.
