Gyotaku: Japanese Fish Printing at Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center

Bruce Koike

Bruce Koike

A new exhibit at the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center brings to life the vibrant art of Gyotaku, a Japanese word that roughly translates as “Fish Printing.”

On Sunday, March 29th, from 4:30 to 6:00 pm, guest curator Bruce Koike will be sharing history of the art form, techniques, and materials. Koike will also lead a tour through the exhibit, and demonstrate his Gyotaku skills.

Having grown up in San Diego, fish and fishing have always been part of Bruce’s life. His passion for the ocean brought him to the Oregon State University Hatfield Marine Science Center in the mid 1980s to earn a Masters degree in Fisheries Science. During this time, Bruce first attempted and developed in the art of Gyotaku. After his graduation, Bruce worked at the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans.

Bruce obtains specimens from his public aquarium colleagues, research scientists, Asian fish markets, commercial fishers, recreational anglers and has, on occasion, been successful at catching a specimen or two. He has printed over 150 different species of aquatic animals including fish, seaweed, crab, clam, octopus, and squid.

The Gyotaku exhibit runs through September 6th, 2015, and features the collective works of Bruce Koike, Leighton Blackwell, John Buchanan, Heather J Fortner, and Marion Moir. Many of the pieces are available for purchase with proceeds benefiting the Maritime Center.
