1973-2005. The art of Tetsuya Ishida.
Born in 1973 in Yaizu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Tetsuya Ishida was a Japanese painter who "depicted the importance of individual rights and acutely criticized the problems in the Japanese educational system and the controlled social structure, expressing the problems people carry in their hearts." (From the homepage, rough translation mine.) He died in a train accident at a railroad crossing in Machida, Tokyo in 2005 at the age of 31.
For those short on time:

And my favorite, Taieki
(Body Fluid, 2004) painted a year before his death.
