Kal Gajoum was born in Tripoli (Libya) in 1968. His interest in art was sparked at a very early age. In fact, he was only ten years old when he entered his first art competition. Later on he was introduced to oil painting and palette knife techniques by friends of the family who were artists in attendance at the Leonardo da Vinci school of art in Rome. He held his first exhibition in 1983 in Tripoli.
Kal would eventually move to Paris to learn watercolour techniques and the Parisian style of painting from a private artist. He also spent seven years working in Malta for the Royal Fine Art Gallery as a professional artist, continuing his pursuit of artistic knowledge. He traveled to Tunisia during this time to give exhibitions.
In 2000 Kal found himself in Britain where he ran the Center Of Britain Art Gallery.
He started a permanent exhibition in the City Of Carlisle where he steadily developed his palette knife techniques and put together a set of four limited edition watercolour prints of the city.
2003 Kal immigrated to Canada where he now resides in British Columbia, Quebec and France. He now concentrates on cityscapes and still life’s using his palette knife techniques in oil on canvas.
