Raised within an abusive and violent family, Karl spent most of his youth in homes and boarding schools. In his teenage years he ended up in the Amsterdam nightlife where he led a life amidst prostitutes, weapons, violent robberies and fraud. For all of these he was convicted at one time or the other until, as an adult, he turned his life completely around. This background reflects in his contemporary work.
