Gallery Opening : Original Gyotaku works by Desmond Thain

Drifter Uluwatu presents their gallery opening of Original Gyotaku works by Desmond Thain on November 2nd.

Born in Honolulu Hawaii, Desmond moved to Japan to enable a true understanding of his deep cultural roots through art. His inspiration for each art work is not through simple and passive observations, but rather an intimate relationship with nature, with focuses on anatomical correctness that is not often seen in marine art. The Japanese fish printing style known as “Gyotaku” is not only an art form, but was once an important method for fishermen to record their catch during a pre-camera era.

Today, we see it as a fascinating, nature oriented technique that both honours and documents fish. For more information check out @driftersurfshop on Facebook.
