Mohammad Ariyaei was born in 1987 in Ispahan, Iran.
He grew up with his grand-mother who practised Sufism and mysticism through the writing of prayers, dialogue with parallel worlds and exorcism. She told him many stories that will develop his imagination and nourish his artistic inspiration later on.
In 2013, he started painting on the advice of a children’s book illustrator. Being a self-taught artist, he never stopped painting since then.
