Dating back to mid-19th century Japan, gyotaku is a form of printing that uses a real fish (or octopus). To create each piece, a fish is laid on a wood bench and painted on one side with sumi ink. A sheet of paper or textile is then applied to the inked side to create a print. Created by artist and Fishing For Gyotaku founder Dwight Hwang, this limited-edition reproduction print is rich with subtle imperfections. The work depicts a flying squid and is stamped with Hwang’s name in kanji characters and signed with his English name.

Scanned reproduction of an original gyotaku print by Dwight Hwang. Stamped and signed by the artist. Unframed.

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.
