Tetsuya Ishida’s surrealist self-portraits


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.

  1. Wow this is beautiful, a typical Japanese school building. I feel like the mind inside the child is trying to escape and find better things to do to exercise his or her creativity. The same for many school children all over the world.
