Kal Gajoum nació en Libia, Trípoli, en 1968. Su interés por el arte despertó a una edad muy temprana. De hecho, sólo tenía 10 años cuando participó en su primera competición artística. Más tarde fue introducido en la pintura al óleo y la espátula por un amigo de la familia también artista, que asistía a la Escuela Leonardo Da Vinci en Roma. Su primera exhibición fue en Trípoli en 1983.
