Sedrick Chisom (b. 1989, Philadelphia, PA) is a painter and writer who lives and works in New York. His paintings reference the racialized idioms of Victorian Fantasy illustration, and use the romantic landscape as a site where the apocalyptic narratives of white supremacy, Christianity, and climate change intersect — a scenario in which most of the built environment has been obliterated and transformed into a toxic, hallucinatory wasteland. He has been included in group shows at JTT Gallery (Beside Myself), Signal Gallery (GDPR), and Abrons Art Center (Leap Century). His work has been featured in New American Painters (issue 134), and he has been written about in Forbes Magazine, Artnet, and Artsy. He received his BFA from The Cooper Union (2016), where he was awarded The Jacques and Natasha Gelman Foundation Award For Exceptional Ability, and his MFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University (2018).
