Between 1976 and 1979, he spent the course of film directing at the Young Cinematographers Association. In 1987, he finished his studies in graphics at the Academy of Decorative Arts. During the social movements between 1979 and 1982, he and his brothers, Kourosh and Ismail Shisheagaran designed posters with political and social themes (first concerning the Arab and Lebanon war and later in connection with the 1979 revolution and...) They used to print and stick them on walls all over Tehran. In 1989, his first solo exhibition was held at Nafareh Publishing Center, Tehran. Since then, he has exhibited his works in individual and group exhibitions in Iran and abroad. In 1991, he won the biennial prize of the country's painters, which was held at the Museum of Contemporary Arts. A book of his designs, One Hundred Portraits of Sima Pahlavan Takhti, was published in 1998. Shihegaran has been a member of the Association of Iranian Painters Board of Directors.
Shishegaran, during the 1980s and 1990s, mainly drew the faces of cultural and social celebrities. He intended to visualize the characters' inner qualities rather than simulate their faces. In his other works, he chose a subject and executed it from multiple angles and styles. Recently, he switched to digital painting, which involves performing the work by hand and then processing it with the help of a computer. In other periods of his works, he created abstract and semi-abstract paintings. His works have been offered and sold in the Tehran auction and Smart Action. Shishegaran has also been active in logo design, logotype, book cover design, etc.
