Enjoying the Derissi Company

Derissi is a unique, charismatic and inspiring character. It is simply a fabulous experience to speak with him and it is an inspiring moment to hear him speak. He will bring forward and flashes all in your eyes: a lifetime of experiences, memories, stories, history, art and humanity all through the Derissi lens flashing like a motion picture in front of you!

Abbas Derissi Iranian Master Painter and his Ballerina painting

In a nutshell, Derissi is one of the few Iranian painters which I like, respect and value his work. His art is different, has its own character, meaning and in-depth discoveries. Each painting, tells a unique story via colors and patterns. Each painting is full of a special message. Derissi is an artist with deep emotions, feelings, philosophy and a cause.

Far but in Reach

Derissi is one of the most humble, friendly, hospitable and honest human beings which I have ever met. Derissi is one of the most talented painters which I have met. What makes Derissi special is the way that he displays his intellectual criticism or message through colors, patterns and art.

Derissi Brand

You can tell it is a Derissi painting because, no matter what the style, yet Derissi always draws two little men at some corner of his canvas observing the scenery! When I asked him why? Derissi replied:

“One hand has no voice; it takes two hands to make a noise!”

Derissi is always pro working together as a team, a group and a nation to make a change and an impact.
