The Eubie Blake Center would like to express our deepest condolences to the Family of Ernest Kromah.


We are sorry to announce the passing of a Baltimore Icon... ERNEST MARSHALL KROMAH.

An American artist whose work transcends definition. His masterpieces are inundated with rich vibrant colors, textures and designs that conjure highly sensual, spiritual emotions, and concepts of the known and unknown. Ernest is also known for creating customized works based upon concept and décor of a space or a specific concept for showcasing. The versatility of his artistic talent is uniquely exceptional.

Ernest M. Kromah's mission is to expose the world to his artistic creations and thinking in anticipation of influencing them to expand their minds for whatever purpose they may deem necessary. He was born April 18, 1939 in Baltimore, Maryland.

Kromah started creating artwork at the age of 3 yrs. old, according to his paternal aunt, who became his guardian after his mother, a designer, transitioned when he was 11 yrs. old. His fine art talent was heavily influenced by the artistic talent in fashion, food and fine art of his Mother, Margaret and other family members, as well as, mentors: Thaddeus Quarles, Robert O. Torrence, Cliff Smith and Howard Marshall (known as "Uncle Sammy," an art educator)

He studied to be a chef/pastry chef at age 15, under his father's training for 10 years. He commenced, developed and operated his culinary and artistic entrepreneurial enterprises from 1965-2011 at which time serious health challenges did not allow him to continue in business.

The enterprises included ownership of a small neighborhood restaurant, kitchen cabinet design/installation manufacturing company, five pastry shops and baking production plant (that were located in Towson, Hamilton, Mt, Vernon and the Gallery in Harborplace), a 30,000 sq. ft. banquet hall/ catering company (housed in the downtown Baltimore Grand), tea room/art gallery (housed on the historic Antique Row), and 4 additional art galleries that included two private home galleries and a non-profit that implemented a cultural arts program and radio show on WEAA-FM, Morgan State University, entitled "Creative Forces."

Although he achieved a reputable name in the culinary field as exceptionally artistic and superb in creating authentic, unusual taste and presentation in his products, his passion has always been fueled by the various art establishments that he founded and operated mostly for the purpose of playing an instrumental role in the growth and development of other fine artists that included Joyce Scott, Thomas Miller, Jerry Prettyman, Robert O. Torrence, Januwa Moja, Nathaniel Gibbs, Andy Pigatt, to name a few.
