Keren Kroul works with watercolor on paper to create dense and rhythmic organic formations. Inspired by memories, neural pathways, and natural elements, they are fantastical landscapes of the mind.
Born in Haifa, Israel to an Argentinean father and Israeli mother, Keren was raised in Mexico City, Mexico and San José, Costa Rica. She currently lives in Minneapolis, where she teaches painting and drawing.
Keren has exhibited regionally and nationally. She was awarded an Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board in 2015, 2017, and 2019. Her work has been featured in MN Original (TPT-Twin Cities PBS), and in print publications such as Paint Lab, Color Lab, Tangled Art and New American Paintings. Keren was selected for a Jerome Emerging Artist Exhibition at the Rochester Art Center, and was a finalist in the 2D Juried Category at ArtPrize. She holds a BA in Fine Arts from Brandeis University and an MFA in Painting from Parsons School of Design.
