Fish rubbing, an art of printing from nature, has been practiced for hundreds of years in China. The whole process includes washing a fish, applying ink or pigment, and pressing a piece of paper on the fish, with the eyes painted in afterwards.

The method not only captures images of the creatures' sizes, shapes, surface textures, and delicate veins or scale patterns, but also evolved into a unique art that worships natural beauty.

Zhao Jianming from Zhangjiakou, North China's Hebei Province, is a fish rubbing lover. He opened an account on Kuaishou, a popular video-sharing app in China, and updates his account regularly. Let's have a look at some of his artworks.
