Siamak was born in 1970 Tehran. He received his high school diploma in Art in 1990 and graduated from Tehran Azad University in Graphic Design with BA degree in 1995.
From 1988, Siamak started his career as graphic designer, working in different fields of designing, advertising, branding, and visual arts. He has been appointed as the Art Director and Graphic Designer of the Iranian Fajr Film Festival for the period of five years from 1997 to 2002.
In his art works, Siamak uses the visual language of advertising with its authorial intentions, not only as a tool to mock Iranian's high end consumerist aspirations but also ironically points to the impossibility of the production of these products in contemporary Iran.
