Title: "Mango" the Mahi Mahi Gyotaku
Medium: PrismaColor on Mulberry Paper Digital Fine Art Print
Lāna`i artist Kristin Belew painstakingly embellished this life-size, digital reproduction of a Mahi Mahi Gyotaku print with PrismaColors. What a stunning presentation!
Mahi Mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) are often sought out by fishermen because of the fight they put up and because they make a great meal! Kristin said: "I love Mahi for their colors. These fish can be bright yellows, neon greens and brilliant blues.
"This Mahi was caught on a charter fishing trip offshore Lāna`i and fed several families. As I work up my fishes their names come to me. This was a female Mahi who lots of dark spots, just like mangoes often do."
