Italian biologist uses japanese gyotaku

21-10-2021 by Freddie del Curatolo

The "gyotaku" is an ancient Japanese art that consists in imprinting (originally on rice paper) the image of fish ("gyo" in Japanese) painted, to obtain a work as natural and faithful to the original.
In Italy, as far as we know, there is only one artist, in Liguria, who relies on this technique to immortalize in an artistic way the specimens of the Mediterranean and sensitize those who admire his works on the pollution of the seas.
In Kenya, precisely in Malindi, is a retired marine biologist, Daniele Bedulli, from Mantova, who after having traveled the world a few years ago decided to move to the shores of the Indian Ocean to perpetuate this ancient and fascinating art that comes from the Rising Sun.
Bedulli, in addition to the expertise, has a great passion for the sea and its conservation (together with his wife Charity and his daughter is active in cleaning the beach and the city, as well as studying and disseminating necessary information on pollution by microplastics) and is also a fisherman.
In this video we show his works and the whole process of gyotaku in Kenya.
