Hello, my name is Molly Keen, a Visual Artist that transforms barren walls into whimsically activated colorful works of art. I received my formal education from Washington State University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts 2006-2010. I am from Seattle, Washington and currently live in Oakland, California where, for the past ten years, I have created murals throughout 32 cities and 20 different countries in North, Central, and South America, Europe, the Mediterranean, and the European Balkans. The majority of my murals are acrylic, however, aerosol started to emerge in the last 8 murals.
Community participation is present in my pieces, where I facilitate multiple days of community mural painting similar to that of a paint by numbers technique for adults and youth. The style that I am is known for is my large flowing ribbons with bright colors that appear as a focal point.
I am currently a full time working Artist that specializes in Sculpture and Murals. The beginning of my professional career started as an Art Coordinator for people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s in Berkeley, California.
My initial love for creating began with my mother, who encouraged my passion for exploration and became the most important inspiration for my life as an Artist. My mother, Cindy Keen, was likewise an artist herself and I changed my name from Molly Aigner to my Artist Molly Keen to honor my Mother’s memory.
