Scott Szegeski Surfboard Print - Blue
Gyotaku (pronounced GHEE-OH-TAH-KOO) is the art and technique of Japanese Fish Printing. Gyo means ‘Fish’ and Taku means ‘Rubbing’ or ‘Impression’. The earliest known gyotaku were made in the 1860’s to preserve a true record of the size and species of fish caught by Japanese anglers. It later evolved into an art form.
However, Scott Szegeski takes a twist on this traditional art because his subject matter comes from his own vintage surfboard and vintage fin collection. Six prints are done for each surfboard and fin, then those fins and boards are pulled out of rotation permanently, and surfed for the rest of their lives.
These prints are archival quality framed with a distressed, bleached wood finish. Edition of six.
