Filled with color and passion, paintings by the artist Kal Gajoum have their own energy. Regardless of what the artist portrays - rainy streets, flower arrangements or bottles of exquisite wine - he confidently makes his own way in the art world. And this road is fascinating.
Kal Gajoum was born in Tripoli in 1968. Thanks to family friends, the boy was introduced to the art of oil painting from an early age, and already in 1983 his first exhibition took place. Since childhood, the artist dreamed of traveling and made his dream come true: for a long time he lived in Paris, Malta, Britain, where he studied the art of painting with the outstanding masters of our time. It was during this time that Kal Gajoum found himself in Post-Impressionism.
Although the artist experimented with many styles of painting and even painted watercolors over the years, he eventually came to the conclusion that it was with oil paints that he could express himself best. After all, oil gives the author depth and volume that cannot be obtained from watercolor. More and more color began to appear in Kal Gajoum's works, and his current style gradually took shape, and bright scenes of street life filled with red umbrellas became the artist's hallmark.
Kal Gajoum's work has a warmth and energy that is often forgotten by contemporary artists. His paintings are both modern and traditional, powerful and delicate, complex and simple. Kal Gajoum is a true colorist whose work brings light to the room. And, probably, this is not only because the artist has mastered the painting technique well. He truly loves his job - and each of his jobs radiates this love.
Now the artist lives and works in Canada, and his works are in both public and private collections around the world, including the USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, and European countries. You can see more of his paintings on the website.

We have seen and talked about many installations. Separately, of course, ice and snow sculptures, as well as those made from food, can be distinguished. However, it turns out that installations can be anything! For example, from umbrellas. The most ordinary, unremarkable umbrellas
Several years ago, visitors to New York's Battery Park witnessed an amazing sight: umbrellas with images of huge butterflies were placed on the lawns.

A modern person does not have as much free time as he would like. And everyone wants to use it as efficiently as possible. Going to the cinema can be time-consuming. Since it is necessary to prepare for them, and in large cities to spend a lot of time on the road due to large traffic jams
