Keren Kroul works with watercolor on paper to create dense and rhythmic organic formations. Examining identity through memory and inspired by 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, drawing, and design.
Keren exhibits regionally and nationally. She has been awarded Artist Initiative Grants 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. In 2017 Keren was selected for the Jerome Foundation Emerging Artists Exhibition Series at the Rochester Art Center, and in 2016 she was a finalist in the 2D Juried Category at ArtPrize.
Keren holds a BA in Fine Arts from Brandeis University (Waltham, MA) and an MFA in Painting from Parsons School of Design (New York, NY).
