William Moss has captured Detroit's past in his limited edition lithographs, along with a DVD which brings to life the memories of the city that he knew.
Bill has a passion for Detroit and shows it in his work - you can almost feel the vibrations from the passing street cars on the brick streets, taste a Boston Cooler at Vernors, or hear the roar of the crowd at the corner of Michigan & Trumbull. Remember standing on the deck of the Bob-Lo boat in a balmy breeze, or feeling the blustery winds while watching Santa arrive to receive the Key to the City of the Straits?
Bill was born on Detroit's East side in 1943. His daily commute to Cass Technical High School heightened his interest in the history and architecture of his home town. He graduated from Cass Tech in 1962 and continued his education at Wayne State University, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1966. His highly detailed style of painting is a result of combining extensive historical research with a career as an architectural delineator.
