Gyotaku prints





So the other day I was searching for artists online for my contextual studies, and I came across a Japanese method of printing called 'Gyotaku'. Traditionally, you would paint the side of a fish with sumi ink and then use rice paper to lift/collect the textures made. It's really simple but so beautiful at the same time. My dad's is going through a fishing phase at the moment, so he let me use one of his catches.

I also bought a few things after work.
