Tetsuya Ishida’s surrealist self-portraits

June 7, 2010

I am both grateful and sad to learn about Tetsuya Ishida, a highly talented surrealist painter from Shizuoka who died several years ago at age 22, in a train accident which may have been a suicide. He was a prolific artist who often drew himself as part of a machine or appliance. There’s a real beautiful sadness about his pieces, some of which sold at auctions for about $10K.
