Tetsuya Ishida was a Japanese surrealist painter. Sadly, he died at the age of 31 in 2005 when he accidentally stepped in front of a train in Tokyo. Much of his work was influenced by Japan's lost decade. Much of his work is very dark, featuring sad looking men, said to strongly resemble Ishada, embedded  in machinery and other objects.

There are more samples after the jump, and more at Pink Tentacle where I found these images. You can also view additional examples at this Japanese site.
