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. "Sia Aryai's artwork captures the sensual delicacy of the feminine mystique combined with a rough course embellishment suggestive of Ancient Persia and modern day women, transcending time and place, in a subconscious space that attracts and affects us all." Says NoHo Gallery Curator Daniel De Bevoise. Sia is also credited with producing artistic product renderings for such major companies as Nike, Kraft, and Adidas. His images have also appeared as key set decorations in major 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.
