Kal was born in Tripoli in 1968, immigrated to Canada in 2003 and currently calls Vancouver, British Columbia home. His interest in art was sparked at a very early age, he was only 10-years-old when he entered his first art competition.
He was introduced to oil painting and palette-knife techniques by a friend of the family studying at the Leonardo da Vinci School of Art in Rome, Italy. Kal’s mastery of this palette knife technique and his exceptional skill at oil painting would make him a favorite for collectors around the world.
He held his first exhibition in 1983 in Tripoli. In 1986 Kal moved to Paris to learn watercolour techniques and the Parisian style of painting from a private artist. Returning to Tripoli in 1992, he had an exhibition displaying his new talents.
In 1993 Kal moved to Malta as a professional artist were he spent seven years working for the Royal Fine Art Gallery and continuing his pursuit of artistic knowledge. During his stay in Malta, Kal exhibited his work many times between 1995-1999, including traveling to Tunisia to exhibit in the Finesse Gallery of Carthage.
In 2000 Kal found himself in Britain where he ran the Centre of Britain Art Gallery. Opening a permanent exhibition in the City of Carlisle in 2001, he continued to develop his unique palette-knife techniques. Further exhibitions in London and Hawaii helped increase the global scope of Kal Gajoums career.
In 2005 Kal Gajoum began exhibiting with The Plaza Galleries and we have been proud to be a part of Kal’s incredible story ever since.
