About Us – Gyotaku Fish Art - The Fish Rubbing Process
The fish rubbing process, also known as Gyotaku, began two thousand years ago in the Orient. It was originally done to document species and sizes of fish. It then transformed into an art form. The Gyotaku technique allows for a truly accurate image of all the details in each fish.
Simple and Beautiful
“I use the following method to make the image look as natural as can be. First I mix up paint or ink and then apply it directly on the fish. Next, I simply cover the fish with fine paper or fabric and gently rub.”
