Ed Moses (b. 1926) is an American abstract painter who is a central figure in the Los Angeles art scene and a key promoter of Post-War, West Coast art. He is known for his range of abstract paintings that use a variety of processes to experiment with surface, creating striations, cracks, marks, and blurs that are sometimes juxtaposed with hard-edge geometric abstraction. Born in Long Beach, California, he studied at the University of California, Los Angeles. His works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others.
