Every morn and every night Some are born to sweet delight. Some are born to sweet delight, Some are born to endless night.

Tetsuya Ishida 

was a Japanese painter, best known for his surreal portrayal of an ordinary Japanese life. He was accidentally killed by a train in 2005. Ishida’s works feature three major themes: Japan’s identity and role in today’s world; Japan’s social and academic educational structures, and Japanese people’s struggles to adapt to social and technological changes in Japan’s contemporary life. He conveys isolation, anxiety, identity crisis, scepticism, claustrophia and solitude, incurred by these themes, by making school boys and business men as part of a factory and portraying young people, mostly young men, as physically integrated with everyday household objects. Such as a wash basin, a radiator, a toilet and a desk. His subjects have faces that resemble Ishida’s own face. The resemblance suggests these are autobiographical, but Ishida had firmly denied this. >>>
