Gyotaku Fish Prints

Gyotaku is the traditional Japanese method of printing fish, a practice which dates back to the mid-1800s. This form of nature printing may have been used by fishermen to record their catches, but has also become an art form of its own.

Each fish rubbing is unique. The set up can be changed in a variety of ways. We use a broad range of fish prints or inks. The printing stock can vary from the gentlest rice paper to a much firmer canvas.

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.”
-John F. Doherty, Artist and Owner
