A collaboration between master calligrapher Shinko Tanaka and Dwight Hwang, this signed and stamped reproduction print depicts an octopus gliding through the deep. The calligraphy reads, “外柔内剛,” which translates to “gentle but firm.” This describes both the octopus physically, and a certain type of human personality. But then, you knew that.
Fishing For Gyotaku
Founded in 2011 by Southern California artist Dwight Hwang, Fishing For Gyotaku presents the Japanese art of gyotaku, a traditional art that uses fish to make beautiful, accurate prints. Used by fisherman to record their catch, gyotaku printing—which Hwang learned while living in Japan—creates images more beautiful than a photo and more eco-friendly than taxidermy.
