Moses E. Hoskins was born in 1953 in Iowa where he spent his youth and some time as an adult. He was educated in public schools and attended a few colleges in the Midwest before attaining a BFA later on in 1981 from the University of Iowa School of Art and Art History in what was to come to be construed as a last-ditch effort at Formal Education. As a visual fine artist, his roots were in figurative rendering, but Hoskins has worked abstractly since the mid 80's. His work is based upon aesthetic concerns. Development continues through mundane life experience, occasional world travel -and the passage of time.

Residing in New York City since 1988, Hoskins exhibits in a variety of venues. He is a past recipient of grants for support of his work from the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation and also from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and was a guest at Yaddo.

Hoskins exhibited regularly with OK Harris in NYC from 2000 until their closing in 2014 after 45 years. Currently his work is in the inventories of Giampietro Gallery -New Haven, Robischon Gallery -Denver, and is also included in White Columns' Artist Registry.
