This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Siah Armajani (born 1939) is an Iranian-born American sculptor.  He designed the Olympic Torch presiding over the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. He has worked on other projects such as the New York Staten Island tower and bridge, the Round Gazebo in Nice, France, and the Irene Hixon Whitney Bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States.

His 2005 work, Fallujah, is a modern take on Picasso's Guernica, but has been censored in the U.S. due to its critical view of the war in Iraq. One of Armajani's important projects is located at North Shore Esplanade at St. George's Ferry Terminal, Staten Island, NY.

Armajani has said: "All buildings and all streets are ornaments. Moreover, the lighthouse and bridge gives a place to the representational arts of poetry, music, and performing. By embracing all of the arts, the lighthouse and bridge asserts its own perspective everywhere.

In 2010 he won a Fellow award granted by United States Artists.

An exhibition at Muelensteen Gallery in 2011 presented a dozen of Armajani's early pieces created in the years leading up to his arrival in America. Many employ ink or watercolor on cloth or paper, and incorporate text. In his Shirt (1958), Armajani uses pencil and ink to completely cover his father's shirt in Persian script.
