• sia aryai

    Born in Tehran, Iran, Aryai displayed an interest in art from early childhood.
    
    Finding himself in a stringent cultural environment. In the mid 70's, Aryai left 
    
    Iran for England where he received his formal education and was free to 
    
    pursue his artistic passions. Later he ventured on to the United States where
    
    in the mid 80's he immersed himself in the medium of photography. This gave
    
    him the perfect means and medium to capture the essence and the beauty 
    
    through his own unique vision, approach, and style.
    
    Aryai is also credited with producing artistic product renderings for such major 
    
    companies as Nike, Kraft, Blue Cross and Adidas, Samsung. His images 
    
    have also appeared as key set decorations in major motion pictures.
    
    Aryai's images speak universally and have garnered both national and
    
    international acclaim. His art works have shown in galleries and museums
    
    throughout the United States and Europe.
