Always make your painting an opening to the world. Leonardo da Vinci
At the age of 6, I discovered my passion for art and drawing. I started to express myself with colored pencils, inspired by the comics I read.
I continued my studies in Applied Arts and developed a strong taste for detail and precision. This is why I chose to specialize in the hyperrealist movement, which allowed me to create realistic works.
I am passionate about exploring the most pressing issues of our time, such as environmental challenges and social problems. I try to stay aware of what is happening in the world.
Going beyond photography and drawing with meticulousness and technique the smallest details, even the most microscopic, is how Karim's hyperrealist style is defined. From 5H to 14B, it is the whole range of graphite pencils that he uses on paper, sometimes combined with colors or tools such as the stump. Tenacious and persevering, he constantly surpasses himself, often inspired by great masters like Michelangelo or Da Vinci. With his custom-made "eyeglass portraits", he challenges and questions his models who discover, behind their own veiled gaze, a reflection or a part of their personality. An analyst and observer, the artist also seeks to give meaning to his works and to open people's consciousness to the environment and the evolution of the world. For Karim, the simplicity and precision of his features contribute to express and transmit his message to his public.
