As an Artist and Painter, Karim’s work is about displaying the stories of his subjects that he paints in a way that the audience may at the end understand but also come up with their own story about that specific person that was painted. Using Family and Friends from his life, he uses them to show the audience what their qualities and traits are, but also using different colored backgrounds to cement what he believes the main idea would be.
