By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the second of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by contemporary Iranian-American landscape painter Abbas Darabi (born 1953 in Tehran, Iran).
Abbas Darabi is a landscape oil painter living in Eugene, Oregon. As a child, he fell in love with nature. His family often traveled to the mountains for picnics and to see the flowers. Abbas lived in California for most of his twenties then moved to Eugene in 1993 where he was surrounded by rivers and trees. He met his wife and they moved to Moscow, Idaho
where he graduated with a degree in studio fine art. The Palouse, beautiful roaming hills in the Idaho panhandle, often show up in his paintings along with influences from his childhood.
Painting is Abbas’ passion and lifetime hobby and he is thankful to be able to commit himself fully to following his dream. The essence of his work comes from the beauty of nature and his motivation is to capture all the richness of nature on canvas to bring a calm and sense of peace to viewers.
Abbas has shown his work at Living Gallery in Ashland, Oregon and at The Watershed and Opus VII in
Eugene. His paintings can also be seen at PeaceHealth
Hospital in Vancouver, Washington.

Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist
Abbas Darabi (Born 1953)
“I have found a passion in painting that I have never found in other pursuits. No matter if the painting is problematic or is one that flows smoothly my desire to improve my art has not wavered.
By striving for continued improvement my hope is to better communicate that sense of wonder, joy and serenity I find in nature.”
