Kareem was born in Damascus, Syria in 1976 and graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in 1998.  This master sculptor participated in the Forum of Arab Sculptors in 2003 and 2004 and displays his work in individual and joint exhibitions annually.  Kareem has had two art exhibitions the first was in October 2016 on Church Street, Montclair and the other on South Fullerton steers, Montclair by the Creativity Caravan in April 2018.

Kareen says it is his wife, Sana, who inspires him to create his incredible works of art.  Music has also been a major influence in his life and he often finds that mixing music and the visual image is a good way help his idea come to life.  He has the ability to take a piece of wood and turn it into the most enchanting work of art.
