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, his 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 receiving a BFA 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. He had exhibited regularly with OK Harris in NYC from 2000 until their closing in 2014 after 45 years. Currently his work is with Fred Giampietro, New Haven.
