More Water & Wood

Watch Brandon Nonaka share the art form known as Gyotaku. Brandon gave this demo at the Water & Wood show in February.

Gyotaku dates back to 18th century Japan. Before the invention of cameras and photography, Japanese fishermen invented Gyotaku to record trophy catches.

The non-toxic water-based acrylic ink washes off with water to ensure that the fish will not be wasted and can be safely consumed after printing. The beauty of Gyotaku allows the fish to be enjoyed not only as a meal, but immortalized as a work of art that can be enjoyed for years to come. Gyotaku is a snapshot of an experience and an expression of eternal life.

Come by Resin Gallery in Hermosa Beach to see more incredibly cool art being created and shown. Open to the public most days from 10am-4pm.
