Japanese artist Tetsuya Ishida painted scenes of ordinary life in Japan where the protagonist is trapped in the body-machine, often a part of assembly lines. At other times the body is merged with architectural elements like schools, landscapes, walkways, gardens or smaller items such as sinks, toilets, beds, cars.
His paintings are portraying a darker side of Japanese life and of human existence in general.
He died in 2005 after being hit by a train. How ironic.
Viva la ART!
