Karim El Seroui was born in Cairo / Egypt and shaped by Egyptian and Austrian cultural influences. He studied architecture at the Technical University Graz, graduating from the Technical University Vienna, and art under Giselbert Hoke. Karim El Seroui is a Vienna based sociopolitical painter and sculptor. Due to his architectural background he engulfs emotions and impressions of our times within a geometrical figuration. Each picture exposes a scene on stage supporting various individual interpretations. Immersion into a whole host of impressions leads to subjective patterns of thoughts.

He is Chairman of the art and cultural association LIFESPAN, for which he also curated the exhibition ‘Barrierefreiheit im Kopf’ in 2015. 

In 2017 he founded the Creative Cluster, an independent multi-disciplinary art incubator with currently 140 artists working on 3,600 m2 in a former school building in 1050 Vienna. Furthermore, the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna is cooperation partner and represented on site with 10 graduates in the context of a one-year studio program.
