Moses E. Hoskins was born in 1953 in Iowa where he spent his youth and some time as an adult.  As a visual fine artist, roots were in figurative rendering but he has worked abstractly since the mid 80's. 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.

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

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 and Robischon Gallery, Denver.
