Ed Moses (American, b.1926) is an abstract painter, central figure in the Los Angeles art scene, and a key promoter of Post-War, West Coast art. Moses briefly enlisted in the US Navy, and, after being rejected from medical school, enrolled in art classes at Long Beach City College. Over the next several years, Moses attended UCLA, the University of Oregon, and UCLA again, where he befriended fellow artist Craig Kauffman, who introduced him to future owner of Ferus Gallery, Walter Hopps, where he had his graduate show.
Today, his works can be found in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Menil Foundation, The Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.
