His use of dynamic composition, powerful expression, and vibrant colors along with great imagination create works of amazing depth and dimension to intrigue and disarm the viewer. This is but one way to describe the paintings of Persian born artist Hessam Abrishami.

Considering Italy the "center of art" in Europe Hessam settled in Perugia, to complete his Master of Fine Arts Degree at the Accadmia Di Belle Arti, "Pietro Vanucci". The bright colors of Italy and the contrast of a quiet and relaxed artistic atmosphere greatly influenced Hessam. Although he concentrated on his first love of portraiture and studies of the anatomy, he also studied impressionism, surrealism, cubism and modern art.

Hessam immigrated to Los Angeles in 1984. He continues to paint passionately, influenced by his dramatic life experience as the world responds.

Height: 18 in x width: 24 in.
