Naoki Hayashi is the world-renowned master of gyotaku, which is a method of printing the image of a fish on paper to commemorate it before it is shared as a meal by friends and family.  Keoni Watson is an avid fisherman, an elite surfer (a past Eddie participant), and a champion paddler, who was raised on the West Side of Oahu by the Queen of Makaha, Rell Sunn.  Keoni caught this monster Ulua off of his outrigger canoe and brought it to Naoki at his Kaneohe studio, who captured its printed image perfectly.  Then we collaborated with Naoki to turn Keoni's catch into a print, placing it with its proper prey fish in the water column and with Keoni's lure baiting it to strike.

The Artist: Naoki Hayashi

Artist Naoki Hayashi began making gyotaku prints at age 11. Since then he has refined and mastered his unique gyotaku process. Each of Naoki's gyotaku pieces is created using non-toxic acrylic paints and Japanese shoji paper. As an avid diver and fisher, Naoki views each gyotaku as a window into the underwater world he sees when diving in Hawaii's beautiful ocean waters. His art features fish in true-life color and in compositions that reflect how they are found in nature. Naoki has a deep respect for the ocean and its creatures. Thus, he will only create gyotaku art from fish that will be eaten. Each of his gyotaku pieces is both a record of a fish and a meal shared with friends and family.
