Keren Kroul creates large-scale watercolor on paper paintings that examine identity through memory, storytelling, and place. Intricate organic and architectonic structures rhythmically expand into fluid networks, unfolding as 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 Spanish, art, and design. Keren exhibits regionally and nationally. She is the recipient of a 2021 Creative Support for Individuals Grant, and 2019, 2017, and 2015 Artist Initiative Grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board. Keren was selected for the 2017 Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist Exhibition Series, and was a 2016 Finalist in the 2D Juried Category at ArtPrize. 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 holds a BA in Fine Arts from Brandeis University and an MFA in Painting from Parsons School of Design.
