Surrealistic paintings by Tetsuya Ishida

Tetsuya Ishida (born in June 1973, Shizuoka) was a talented Japanese painter. The characters in his painting appear unhappy and often their bodies are in pieces or part of some machine or other object. Tetsuya Ishida died in 2005 after being hit by a train (possibly suicide) he leaving behind around 180 works created during his 10 year art career.

On November 26, 2006, one of Ishida’s paintings, “Untitled” 2001, sold at a Christie’s Hong Kong “Asian Contemporary Art” auction for 780,000 HKD (over USD $100,000).
