"The Trout" Print - Buy Artwork and 5% Donated to TU!

posted Feb 2, 2019, 8:36 AM by Michael Iris

I’m a freelance artist, travel journalist, and photographer and I founded a Japanese paper art business 25 years.


The original was made using an art form known as Chigirie, Japanese Torn Paper Collage Art, with 50 or more torn pieces of pre-dyed Washi paper layered to give that watercolor-like appeal. Prints are available in three sizes: 11” x 14”, 12” x 18”, and 16” x 20” (plus shipping) and will be printed (custom-orders) on Archival Fine Art Paper using Archival Pigment Ink. The prints will be shipped to the buyer within 14 days. Visit for additional details.


I will donate 5% of the sales to Trout Unlimited and 5% to Casting for Recovery.


Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for your interest.
