Charlie Brown 

Gyotaku by Charlie Brown

 

"All fishermen are liars except you and me, and I'm not so sure about you." ~ Unknown

 

Charlie Brown became interested in the folk art of Gyotaku because he is a fisherman. In Gyotaku, each fish is inked directly and an image is transferred onto paper. In Japan, before photography, fisherman used this method to take a "picture" of their large fish, proving the size of their catch.

 

He says, "By printing fish, I do not intend to imply that I am not a liar, that would be lying, but I do hope you enjoy my art."

 

Charlie grew up in Fort Myers, as did his father. He fishes out of his home in Shell Creek.
