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.

Regards to Derissi :hatsoff:

Wonderful artist and a beautiful human being. He left a memory of art and humanity as his legacy. This is my favorite Derissi piece from his Clay and Hay collection.

The Choice

The village just got electricity by electric posts and wires. Two crows sitting on the wires. Derissi’s 2 little men standing in the center picture observing (Derissi MO brand). Below the crows are village bungalows drawn by Derissi’s special blend of straws (hay), clay and colors texture. The choice for the birds is to stay with the village (old) or move on to the little pond where the tree of life is coming out of it (new)? The choice is yours? Deeply poetic and philosophical choice to make?

The Choice

Dear Dr. Ahreeman,

Thank you for preserving the legacy of a man so dear to your heart. I enjoyed being able to view many of his paintings and learned of his human love for all people. God bless this wonderful being. Having looked into his eyes and felt the sensitivity of his love of life, I feel a closeness to him and would have loved to embrace him. He has truly given to the world a bit of his vision that we can always look at and remember the creativity of this loving man.

As an author, few people know that I also have a love for sculpture and love to see the feelings of those able to express their soul on a drawing or painting. It’s nice to know there are such gifted people in our world. Thank you for taking the time to preserve the works of Abbas Derissi, a Persian Master of art. Greater still, thank you for having the perception and creative ability to add this special man onto your website. For reading about the gifts of such a man shows that we all share in the very special gift of love and, to share it with others.

Thank you, Dr. X., I felt your grief and love. You were able to give me insights into Abbas, a man that has left a legacy for the human race.

Ahura bless his soul, he was a talented artist and a fine human. Like Ahreeman, I’m more of a classical painting fan but I like his art. Thanks to Ahreeman, his art is preserved and displayed for people to enjoy.

Abbas Derissi will be remembered and cherished

Derissi was a good man with a big heart. IPC misses a great author and humanitarian. Art world misses a super artist and a painter who had something new to say.

His memory will be kept alive in IPC
