Kal Gajoum

Kal Gajoum is an artist who is originally from Tripoli, Libya but is now resides in British Columbia, Quebec and France.  Kal tends to paint with oils and a palette knife giving textured, detailed and lively cityscape paintings bringing dull grey colours but with a tint of orange to brighten the scene.  He has created watercolour paintings too.

I love the detail, colours and textures within these paintings.  But I also love how some parts of the paintings are blurred taking away the detail but still showing clearing in a strange way what object is.  I think my favourite has to be the painting with a red London bus.
