Dar Al Funoon cordially invites you to
Opening at 7pm on Monday 2nd April
Born in Brescia, Italy in 1976. Received his Bachelors and masters degree Savannah College of Art & Design, Savannah, GA, where he also received the Excellence in Painting award. He has exhibited widely in the United States of America, and in France, the UK, Canada, Italy, Ireland and Kuwait.
His body of work consists of a central iconic image, that of a finger imprint, within each thumb imprint he has formulated a pseudo- calligraphic narrative of life experiences on luminous and luxurious enamel weaves. He uses mixed techniques on metal with hues that are intense and vibrant. Karim manipulates the tradition of abstract expressionism and action painting with skillful and subtle knowledge. The hand carved fingerprint is enlarged and delineated with the twists and turns that are unique to each individual.
Exhibition will continue until 19th of April, 2012
