Saeed Rezaei Bio
Saeed Rezaei was born in 1957 in Esfahan, Iran. At age 19 in 1976 he moved to the United States and studied art in Miami-Dade College for two years and then Southern Illinois University for two more years. He also attended Video Production Institute of Dallas. He started his art career both in photography and oil painting in parallel at the same time.
In photography he was following the techniques of Ansel Adams
and in painting he followed the styles of the pioneers
of European impressionist painters.
His early career in the 80s consisted many solo and group exhibits of photography and paintings in Texas and California.
He moved back to Iran in 1990 and continued his art career passionately both in photography and painting. He also involved himself in designing and producing Persian Rugs. In 2002 he came back to America and made five documentary movies both in Persian and English which was broadcast in many international satellite channels. In 2008 he was encouraged to add sculpting to his art career. Since then he has sculpted tens of statues with the theme of ancient Persian art. The sculptures and carved stones of Persepolis palace in Iran which was built in Iran in
400 B.C. have greatly influenced his style of sculpting.
