Mahi Mahi Gyotaku (half)
Limited edition hand signed lithograph print of a Mahi Mahi Gyoaku.
This fish was caught in the summer of 2016 off the coast of Miami. Summer time is when Dolphin fishing is really fun in Miami. If you get on the right patch of weeds or find the right Frigate Bird your day can be made in a matter of an hour just picking away at fish.
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.
