About Mose Tolliver

Folk art has a way of grabbing the senses and pulling them into a world filled with rich narratives, powerful characters, and simple beauty. Such is the work of Mose Tolliver, an African-American folk artist who explores themes of perspective in many of his works. His topics are varied, ranging from "Smoke Charlies" to "Jick Jack Suzy Satisfying her own Self." However, his style is recognizable throughout. Characters often are portrayed with large, staring faces that leap out of the picture frame, arresting the gaze and affection of the viewer. Many seem to be about to speak, cut short at a pivotal moment in time. His paintings also explore naturalistic themes, with animal and plant imagery lending a vivid atmosphere of life. However, others are strictly human in nature. You can find plenty of examples of Mose T's work in the vast large inventory on eBay. A Mose Tolliver work is a portal to another world, where creatures large and small float through the psyche and into reality.
