About Art Gyotaku
Art Gyotaku (Author: Masatsu Matsunaga, Title: Kue)
Takuseikai’s “Art Gyotaku” is the result of more than 50 years of trial and error by Mr. Masatsu Matsunaga, the chairman of Takuseikai. After that, it is a work that sticks to the direct method without adding any corrections other than the eyeballs. From “record gyotaku” where anglers left only the size, “color gyotaku” with colors on the fish began, and further evolved into “art gyotaku” as a work of art with a focus on composition and perspective.
Takuseikai’s “art gyotaku” paints quickly on the fish, and uses traditional art and reliable techniques to remove wrinkles. is a work of “once-in-a-lifetime chance” that does not exist with two pieces. [Image 4
