About the Artists

Dave Gagnon

Dave’s craft is essentially and organically an art of preservation that ignites curiosity and stimulates conversation. His art– simultaneously simple and sophisticated are as beautiful and unique as the trees and the layers of stories behind them.

As a woodworker the most thrilling part of his creative process begins at the natural setting of his trees– whether it’s somewhere deep in Waimea Valley of the North Shore or at a yard in Manoa, Dave’s mindfulness during this initial stage of sense of history and place stirs possibilities of what may become, but more importantly, it sparks gratitude that inspires him to build, in the most authentic representation, beautiful pieces of functional art that people can appreciate for many generations.

Naoki Hayashi

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.

Gyotaku

Gyotaku (gyo “fish” + taku “rubbing”) is a traditional form of Japanese fish printing, in which an actual fish is placed on a surface and then painted on one side with sumi ink. Next the artist places a piece of paper over the ink-covered fish, and rubs the material until the image of the fish is transferred to it.
