Keren Toledano

About the Artist

Keren Toledano is a self-taught artist based in New York City. She received her BA in English from Harvard and her MA in Arts & Humanities Education from NYU. She worked as a literary agent, Hollywood story editor, freelance writer and film archivist, before committing herself to the creative life. After publishing several short stories in literary journals, writer’s block led her to explore fine art. In her first solo show in 2017, THE ACT BUT NOT THE THING IS SACRED, she coupled abstract collage with excerpts from her torn up stories—a reminder never to marry her darlings.

She now splits her time between painting and writing, finding connections across disciplines. In addition to collaborations with interior designers and art publishers, her work has been featured at international fairs and in various magazines.
