These works from Jez explore surfboards within the Japanese printing method of Gyotaku.

Dating back to the mid-1800s, ‘fish printing’ (a method to record the fish caught) delivers a direct, original impression of the surfboard, including the dings. Creating a visual document of a surfboards life.

The Surfboard prints focus around the hand shaped elements of the board, the fins, length and overall detailing of the dimensions. Including the weathering of the craft which grows as the rider’s relationship with foam matures.

Meet Jez at LTHC private view on
