Discover a subject as old as the tradition of printing itself when you browse our fish prints for sale. Artists and documentarians have always been concerned with capturing and representing nature and animals using printing techniques that have been developed over thousands of years, across the world. Although fish in art is more commonly associated with specific histories and cultures, print artists still find reasons to depict fish and other underwater animals in all their otherworldly beauty. If you’re keen to discover and buy fish prints, then why not take a look at our exciting range? You’ll find plenty of other mediums too, including Fish Sculpture, Fish Photography and Fish Drawings.
Artist Nadia Attura’s love for using fish and other animals, above and below sea level have resulted in her work being featured in the New York Times, The Guardian, The Washington Post and Aesthetica Magazine. Nadia mixes paint with photography to create her poetic scenes, with Maldivian Circle being one of our favourite impressionist fish prints. In fact, we admire Nadia’s work so much she was named one of our top artists of 2018.
Another artist who uses fish in her work is Anne Marie Lepretre. Her abstract fish print patterns Little Fishes have been a firm favourite since it was added to our collection here at Rise Art. Anne Marie was born in Paris, she studied textile design followed by printmaking at the Slade School of Art and today she lives and works in Oxfordshire.
Gyotaku is one of the oldest types of fish printing and unique to Japanese culture. Rooted in necessity more than art, it was once a way for fishermen to mark the size and type of their catch so they could be paid for them by fish merchants. Today this style of fish print is its own art form and artists have expanded on the tradition by combining Gyotaku with other types of printing to create novel styles and textures.
But Gyotaku isn’t the only type of Japanese fish print that’s become known around the world. Koi fish prints are also highly valued and sought after by collectors for their aesthetics and close ties with Japan’s national identity. In Japan, Koi is a symbol of luck, prosperity and good fortune.
