Keren Kroul makes large-scale watercolor works on paper. Examining identity through time, memory, and place, 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 art and design. Keren exhibits regionally and nationally. She is the recipient of a 2021 Creative Support for Individuals Grant, and of 2019, 2017, and 2015 Artist Initiative Grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board. 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's large-scale watercolor works earned her a spot in the Juror's Shortlist for the 2016 Two-Dimensional Juried Award at ArtPrize. Keren holds a BA in Fine Arts from Brandeis University and an MFA in Painting from Parsons School of Design.
