"The concept for the piece started mid 2012 as cover artwork for The Green’s new single Liar. The female figure was created with oil paints but the Tako (Japanese for octopus) legs were created in the Japanese tradition of gyotaku, or fish printing. The animal is placed on a flat surface with its legs arranged, painted with watered down sumi ink and then pressed with rice paper leaving the imprint of the tako. My friends and I catch the tako and other fish that I use in my pieces when we go spearfishing and depending on the type of ink I use they are usually still edible after the printing process." - Kamea Hadar
