Artist Dwight Hwang describes this Japanese cuttlefish image as “one of the oddest things I’ve ever printed.” Created from one of his original gyotaku printsmade by painting a real fish with Japanese Sumi ink, covering it with a sheet of rice paper, and rubbing—this photo reproduction is rich with the subtle imperfections offered by this method (which are highly prized in Japanese culture). This print is stamped with Hwang’s name in kanji characters, then 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.
