Born in Tehran, Iran, Sia Aryai displayed an interest in art from early childhood. Surrounded by a stringent cultural environment, as a child, Aryai secretly sketched female figures from smuggled foreign magazines. As the rumblings of an Islamic revolution increased in the mid 70's, Aryai left Iran for England, where he received an education and gained freedom for his artistic passion. Later, he ventured on to the United States, where in the mid 80's he discovered the medium of photography gave him the perfect means to capture the beauty of women. Sia has produced artistic product renderings for such major companies as Nike, Kraft and Adidas. His images have also appeared as key set decoration in studio motion pictures. Sia 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.
