Sloane Siobhan is a multidisciplinary artist from Charlotte, North Carolina. Her work lifts the veil between fact and fiction by alluding to African American folklore and Yoruba mythology. She turns the oratorical traditions of the ancestors into visual metaphors by intertwining abstract with realism and combining fluid colors with symbols of nature and portraiture.
Siobhan received her BFA in Studio Art at Appalachian State University in 2016. In 2017 Sloane was one of five featured artists at the Mint Museum Uptown as a tribute to John T. Biggers. Her work was exhibited at the Paolo Verde Center in Los Angeles, California in 2020 for the group exhibit, Skin In The Game. In 2021 Siobhan was one of five commissioned artists for the Initiative 1897 project in Wilmington, North Carolina that helped shed light on unsung black heroes of Wilmington’s dark past. Her work has been featured at the South Eastern Center for Contemporary Arts in Winston Salem, North Carolina for the 2022 group show Black@Intersection. Sloane’s work also captured the attention of Oprah Winfrey, and was featured in the OWN Network’s original series Delilah (2021).
Siobhan has worked with Maker’s Mark for their Remarkable Cities campaign, with her digital illustration highlighting what makes Charlotte, NC remarkable. The finished piece is currently displayed on the city’s light rail system, the Lynx. Sloane has partnered with city planners such as Center City Partners, the Knight Foundation and Charlotte SHOUT! to produce large scale murals along West Trade Street and downtown Charlotte on 4th Street. She has also worked with local businesses in Las Vegas such as the Velveteen Rabbit, which won best patio bar in the city for its vibrantly colored wall and charming aesthetics.
Sloane has gallery representation through Nine Eighteen Nine Gallery, which has multiple artists who have also been featured on the OWN Network’s original series Delilah. She also works closely with The Black on Black Project based in Durham, North Carolina.
In 2019 Sloane took a leap of faith and drove across the country to Las Vegas, NV to reignite the soul and message of her work. After two years of soul searching in the desert, Sloane is back on the East coast and currently based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Siobhan is currently working on a new series that serves to elevate not only her body of work, but her spirit as well.
