An extensive collection of compositions by artist Shahryar Amiri.

"A brillant erotic artist who is climbing the ladder of success, and with good reason." — Gorgeous Magazine, April/May 2005

The emotion-filled compositions of Shahryar Amiri are dynamic representations of influences that have rarely been brought together before in a body of work. Shahryar expertly blends his Middle Eastern heritage with his strong sense of sexuality by relying on his culture’s appreciation for poetry and color.

At first glance, the resulting artwork is startling and perhaps shocking, but after longer observation the compositions’ nuances resolve the initial perceptions of conflict and the viewer develops a deeper sense of meaning by closely studying the pieces that read like books.

HAPPY SEXUALITY
“In those days, a gay man was made to feel nothing but shame about his feelings and his sexuality. I wanted my drawings to counteract that, to show gay men being happy and positive about who they were. Oh, I didn’t sit down to think this all out carefully. But I knew — right from the start — that my men were going to be proud and happy men!"
