Barracuda Gyotaku (color)
21 1/2 x 10 3/4
Limited edition hand signed lithograph print of a Barracuda Gyotaku. This fish was caught one summer day in 2016 at Government Cut. We were fishing with mullet for small tarpon and snook during the Snook Spawn. This behemoth of a Barracuda took one of our baits and we were able to get him boat side without him cutting us off.
GYOTAKU Gyotaku is an ancient Japanese Art form which involves taking impressions of fish for art. What you see on the paper is actual size of the fish caught. Details are added in after the prints are made and include pen and ink along with watercolor accents. While you can get unlimited prints off of a fish Alex will usually take about 5. Every piece is unique and makes for a great centerpiece in a home.
LITHOGRAPH A lithograph is an authorized copy of an original work created by the artist himself or other skilled craftsmen. The printing is from a stone (lithographic limestone) or a metal plate with a smooth surface.
