A massive THANKS to the South Seas Spearo TEAM for educating around and looking after the waters they play in!!!

This special piece was conceived in Fiordland to protect Fiordland.. it is framed - 610 x 920mm

Visiting Fiordland onboard Flightless earlier this year the SSS team shared their passion for the place and Hapuka with artist Tim Li who generously shared his creativity to help give back to the place.

So by bidding for this unique Gyotaku Hapuka print by Tim Li ART you'll support Pure Salt's TamateaBLUE project...

...looking after what is beneath the surface of Fiordland's reflection in terms of biosecurity, sustainable fishery, full utilisation as well as underwater clean ups.. all proceeds from the auction will go towards our next TamateaBLUE adventure in 2022.

Gyotaku is a traditional printmaking practice originating in Japan in the early 1800s as a way of documenting fish species and size before the invention of the modern day camera.

Non toxic carbon based ink is brushed over the fish using hake brushes made from goat hair. Traditional washi (paper) or cotton are then layed over the fish then rubbed and an impression is created. The eyes and small tonal details are added with a brush to finish the work which becomes uniquely original in it’s own right.

The fish can then be washed off and cleaned in preparation for eating, extending the full utilization of the fish into art.

It was a true pleasure to have Tim Li and the SSS team onboard again... we are proud to be able to share his framed Gyotaku print to support the TamateaBLUE project..
