Geoffrey Moss grew up in an Italian neighborhood surrounded by opera and Sinatra, sepia photographs of costumed opera stars enshrined on upright pianos, where fresh spaghetti dried in Nanny Visca’s kitchen and childhood Saturdays meant poring over old Life magazines on the living room carpet. Opera continues to be his comfort food.
Moss is a Brooklyn born, New York painter / political satirist / children’s book author / conceptualist / set consultant (BAM) / photographer / teacher. As the nationally syndicated creator of MOSSPRINTS, his captionless graphic column has earned him three Pulitzer Prize nominations for his “artist’s take on politics.” Moss’s latest bestseller is The Biker Code, Wisdom For The Ride. His fine art is represented through galleries, museums and corporate collections. He and his muse Marion have been restoring their 200-year-old house near the Tanglewood Music Festival for the last 20 years. He holds degrees from The University of Vermont (BA, Distinguished Alumnus) and Yale School of Art and Architecture (BFA, MFA).
