Tetsuya Ishida


No culture is perfect, because it’s human. While I do love aesthetically pleasing art because it’s BEAUTIFUL and reminds me of the wonder and hope in life (very much needed for me), I do appreciate some darker reflections of culture, such as these I found by Tetsuya Ishida. I am thankful for people who have the talent to express through art forms can visually explain their observations, experiences, and heart to tell what words cannot.

I spent a year in South Korea, and although it was a great experience for me, it was full of challenges and emptiness, and I feel as though my feelings were similar to what these paintings represent. I love culture, though, for the good and bad. It’s what gives it character, provocativeness, and excitement. You know, without knowing dark, there would be no appreciation for light.
