Hessam Abrishami was born in Iran in 1951 and began painting at the age of 15. He received his Master's Degree in Fine Art at the Academi De Belle Arti "Pietro Vanucci" in Perugia, Italy.

These figurative, abstract images are composed of vivid primary colors and reflect graceful movements of human emotions.
