Japanese master of figurative surrealism was born on June 16, 1973, in the city of Yaizu, in the central prefecture of Shizuoka. In his works the artist explores the pressing problems of Japanese society, such as isolation, urban loneliness and social anxieties. Figurative images in the paintings of contemporary Japanese artist are often merged and form a single whole with household objects, technology and interior furniture. Following Chinese artist Zhang Xiaogang, the Japanese painter continues the East Asian branch of contemporary surrealism. Tetsuya Ishida’s work straddles line between reality and dream, more reminiscent of the fantasy worlds of Jean Giraud’s Art Nouveau, but reinterpreted in a Japanese original style.
