Close To Sea

Hessam Abrishami
Close to Sea, 2012.
Original acrylic on board.
Signed at the lower left margin.
Custom framing services are available at the Gallery.

Yearning for a canvas wider than the confines of modern Iran, Hessam set sail for Italy, the sun-drenched cradle of artistic renaissance. Echoes of ancient Persia whispered in crumbling ruins and vibrant bazaars, fueled his artistic fire. In the hallowed halls of Pietro Vanucci, he honed his craft, not just with brush and chisel, but with an unyielding spirit. Today, his vibrant tapestries of emotion adorn the walls of tens of thousands, a testament to his $65 million journey, echoing across hundreds of solo shows and over 30 international stages, finding their final resting place in museums around the world.
