Pete's Fresh Fish Prints
17 Old South Wharf, Nantucket, MA 02554 (508) 325-1842
Gyotaku is the Oriental art of creating prints of genuine fish on delicate rice paper. This artform captures and reproduces the exact characteristics and features of an individual fish. First practiced in the early 1800s in Asia, Gyotako provided an accurate means of measuring and recording a commercial fisherman's actual catch. "Gyo" translates to "fish" and "taku" means "stone rubbing" in Japanese. Pete has expressed a variety of compositions, textures and colors through this unique artform, breaking through yet keeping with the traditional boundaries of this historic medium. Modern Gyotaku is a recognized form of art today and offers a creative, sophisticated alternative to physically mounting your fish with taxidermy. Don't settle for imitations. Pete's Fresh Fish Prints are the ONLY Gyotaku prints that are true Nantucket natives. The fish are caught and printed right on beautiful Nantucket Island.
