Humans simultaneously combine tenderness and violence. If you peel back the face of a beautiful woman, you'll see it's clogged with viscera. Choosing to create a work that is only beautiful would feel artificial. Thus I paint both. You cannot sever the two. The expression that results is a natural chaos. In my work I project chaos, anarchy, anxiety, the grotesque, the absurd, and the irrational. By doing so I attain harmony. This is my art. Put simply, I paint humanity (the spirit). - Daisuke Ichiba
