Keren Kroul works with watercolor on paper to create dense and rhythmic organic formations from meticulous lines and delicate washes, inspired by memories, neural pathways, and natural elements.
Born in Haifa, Israel, to an Argentinean father and Israeli mother, Kroul was raised in Mexico City and Costa Rica, and currently lives in Minneapolis, MN. She holds an MFA in painting from Parsons School of Design (NY) and a BA in fine arts from Brandeis University (MA).
Kroul has exhibited at the Minnesota Museum of American Art, Rockford Art Museum, Duluth Art Institute, Art Museum of the University of Memphis, Revolving Museum, and Soo Visual Arts Center, among others. She was featured in the 2016 season of MN Original (TPT-Twin Cities PBS), and was an ArtPrize Finalist in 2016 (2D category).
Kroul is a 2015 and 2017 recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, and a 2017 Jerome Emerging Artist at the Rochester Art Center (MN).
