Itch Fish Gyotaku Fish Art Print
Itch Fish Gyotaku Fish Art Prints feature stunning recreations of Great Lakes area gamefish, done in the Japanese Gyotaku art style. Gyotaku, originally a way for fishermen in mid-1800s Japan to record their catch using ink and rice paper, uses a fish as a printing 'plate' by applying ink or paint to a caught and cleaned fish and carefully applying the catch to paper to record its natural image. As a result, you end up with a beautiful impression of a real fish, preserving elements of its natural textures and shapes that would otherwise be lost in paintings or photographs. Traditionally, these direct prints are left in black and white, with the eyes painted in after the direct impression of the fish has been made, as it has been in these prints by artists Itch and Judy Penman of Fairview, PA.
Your print will arrive to you already professionally framed in a wooden frame, with a heavy-duty metal hanger in the back of the frame for wall hanging.
The Itch Fish Gyotaku Fish Art Print is made in the U.S.A.
