Koaro, Galaxias brevipinnis. Linocut print on acid free Hahnemuhle Sumi-e paper. Limited edition of 25. Each print is signed and numbered. 250x325 mm.

Koaro are one of New Zealand’s native whitebait species. They love rocky, fast-flowing, forested streams. If the water is too steep or fast for them to swim they will climb up the sides of waterfalls and rocks. This lets them get further inland than many native fish.

I drew the fish, transfered the drawing to lino, carved it, then printed on to beautiful acid-free Hahnemuhle Sumi-e paper. The paper is semi-transluscent which takes the ink well.
