Edgar Mosa is an artist born in Lisbon, Portugal where he was trained as a goldsmith at the age of 14.
Moving from Lisbon to Amsterdam to Detroit to New York City opened to him a world of diversity. The instant infusion of newer culture into his Portuguese sensibilities created a pluralistic point of view from which he draws much of his artistic expression.
After graduating with an MFA, he began to create jewelry collections with strong ideas about fashion and art that embody distinct personalities, while developing sculptural works and campaigns that cement his fine and witty aesthetic. Each piece is a balance of culture, art, fashion and Edgar’s own identity.
Edgar Mosa lives and works in NYC and teaches at Parsons School of Design.
