Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

Default Incredible Paintings by Tetsuya Ishida


Tetsuya Ishida was a talented Japanese painter whose paintings were known for their dark portrayal of Japanese life.

The characters in his painting appear unhappy and often their bodies are in pieces or part of some machine or other object.

The artist died in 2005 after being hit by a train leaving behind around 180 works created during his 10 year art career.

“When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure. There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong–these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.”
— Winston Churchill, House of Commons, 2 May 1935.

LSD will do that to you.
