  • Original Octopus Gyotaku
  • $230

  • Dating back to mid-19th century Japan, gyotaku is a form of printing that uses a real fish to create a print or rubbing. Each piece is produced when a fish is laid on a wood bench and painted on one side with sumi ink. A piece of paper or textile is then applied to the inked side to create a print. This original piece is a rice paper rubbing created by Dwight Hwang and depicts a peaceful octopus gliding through the depths.

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.
