Trained at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, Saied is a figurative Artist living and working in Bath. Over the years he has had many mixed and solo exhibitions in the UK and abroad. He was made a member of The Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 2004 and The New English Art Club in 2009.

Commenting on the difficulties of portraiture, he states " Portraiture can be considered to be the most complex of the visual idioms, both structurally and psychologically and consequently the most fascinating, as one is dealing with humanity itself or in mirror reflection, ourselves. It is also a microcosm in which one can explore almost all the problems of drawing and painting."

Saied describes himself as an abstract figurative painter, "I was fortunate enough to be taught art as architecture. Everything I do is fundamentally based on drawing. Any innovation for me is a movement in depth and not breadth".
