Our dearest Yassaman Pirbastami left us all too soon on October 8th of 2015 in her 31st year. She was a biologist, painter and deeply loved, but her greatest talent was the joy she spread. We want to continue her legacy by sharing her soul through the arts entitled The Yassi Foundation. This living memorial is to display her aesthetic talent and assist young artists present their inventiveness. A gallery for avant-garde and unique arts was her dream. It is to be a creative, learning and visual experience for all. We sense this gallery will reach her and she will reach back through it with delights to many hearts.
