Sachi Rome (b.1977, Atlanta, GA) lives and works in the city of her birth. She graduated with a BA. Ed from Morris Brown College, (GA) with a concentration in painting, under the tutelage of renowned painter Louise Delsarte. Rome went on to attain a M.A from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Rome is a multidisciplinary artist and muralist, flowing seamlessly from painting, printmaking and large scale murals. Foundational to her practice is the use of rich, vibrate color and texture. She leans into abstract figurative works that push beyond both the literal and figurative representation of black bodies. Her work is reflective of critical questions surrounding identity, representation, and the creation of a meta physical space for black bodies to safely exist in.
She has been featured in Forbes, The NY Times and the Huffington Post. Her residencies and fellowships include The Creatives Project (2020-2022), Garden Fellows (2018) and Stay-home Gallery (2021). Her work has been acquired by both public institutions and private collectors throughout the United States. Her exhibition record includes Martha’s Vineyard (MA), The Perez-Art Basel Miami (FL), University of Southern Mississippi (MS), Bo Barrett Art Center (NY), Swan Coach House (GA), Mason Fine Art (GA), Lyndon House Art Center (GA), Apex Museum (GA), amongst others. Her murals and public art can be seen throughout the city of Atlanta. She has spent her artistic career in the dual roles of artist and educator.
