Karim Grusenmeyer (Gent Belgium, 1965) is a Sinologist specialized in Chinese and Southeast Asian Art. He is graciously supported by his wife Isabelle Bilquin, a goldsmith and expert in jewels.

The gallery specializes in exquisite sculpture, objects of beauty and jewelry from China, South and Southeast Asia (e.g. Dong Sôn, Khmer, Gandhara, Gupta), Oceania and Madagascar, as well as Chinese classical furniture."

In 1992 Isabelle and Karim Grusenmeyer-Bilquin opened their gallery of Chinese art specializing in scholar's art, furniture and archaeology. In 2000, the gallery moved to the Sablon district in Brussels and thus was triggered a vivid interest for the arts of Oceania and Madagascar of which fine examples are continuously displayed, in contrast with the works of Southeast Asian art that remain however, dominant in the gallery's collection.

Karim Grusenmeyer is a member of the 'Chambre Royale des Antiquaires et des Négociants en Oeuvres d'Art de Belgique' since 1993 (membership supported by Gisèle Croës and Bernard Blondeel). In 2010, with the patronage of Jacques Barrère and Jacques Billen, Karim was elected member of the Belgian Chamber of Art Experts.

We have participated at numerous national and international antiques fairs, such as BRAFA at Tour & Taxis Brussels, TEFAF Maastricht, TEFAF Basel, Olympia London, BRUNEAF Brussels, BOA Brussels and KAOS Parcours des Mondes in Paris. Please check the portfolio section for images of some events.

Isabelle and Karim Grusenmeyer are founding members of "5 Continents Editions", founded in Milan in 2002 by Eric Ghysels."
