GYOTAKU are considered a thoughtful gift and are believed to bring good luck not only to fishermen but business people as well. The process is fairly simple: Pigment is applied to a real fish. Then paper is carefully touched to the fish. The GYOTAKU is pulled and a detailed mirror image results. I then paint the eye. Several images may be made from the same fish, but no two are ever exactly alike. Each piece is created in a smoke/pet free studio.

This GYOTAKU (fish rubbing) of 2 bluegills and a perch measures 8" x 12" and was made on natural paper. It is a one-of-a-kind original. I identify the fish, sign each and supply a certificate of authenticity and other details of the art. © 2012 Barry Singer. Reproduction rights belong to the artist. It will be shipped in a heavy flat pack or rolled in a tube.
