Gyotaku is the traditional Japanese method of printing fish, a practice that dates back to the mid-1800s. Japanese fishermen used this method to document their great catches. Christopher Dewees' modern take on the art form blends his knowledge of fisheries and ecology to document the fascinating life histories of fish species. In one of his prints he shares the story of the truly transgender Sheephead fish which is born female and later in life switches to male. Another set of prints will capture the intricate and epic travels of native Chinook salmon. Christopher was first introduced to this specialized medium of fish printing in 1968 when he was a graduate student in fisheries biology at Humboldt State University. Christopher went on to earn his Ph.D. in Ecology at UC Davis, CA with a focus on marine fisheries management. He worked as the marine fisheries specialist at Davis from 1972 - 2007 where he served as a link between the University of California and the state's commercial and recreational fishing industries. In the mid-70s, he and two other artist/scientists put together the Nature Printing Society expecting 15-20 people to join. In a short amount of time, it grew to over 300 members from around the world. Since then, Christopher has had many, many exhibitions from California to Washington D.C. to New Zealand. His Gyotaku style is traditional and delicate. He likes to emphasize the structure and movement of the fish and shellfish.
