Well-known Local Artist, Stu Moskowitz Has Cancer
Many locals know Moskowitz’s whimsical paintings. Children, as well as adults, delight in the humorous slant he adds to most of his pieces.
According to the fundraising page,
In the late 1970s, Stewart earned huge success when he released many of his images in poster form, which helped reinvigorate the poster market. Millions of his posters have sold worldwide, and Simon and Schuster published four of Moskowitz’s children’s books, three of which have recently been re-released on Amazon.
Stu’s work became especially popular in Japan in the early 1980s; he maintained copyright licensing deals for his work’s distribution there, and traveled to Japan regularly for decades. He has been celebrated in museum and gallery shows in Tokyo, Hakone, and Osaka.
After twenty-six years of living in Topanga Canyon in Southern California, Stu and his family relocated to Northern California in 2002. Stewart’s kind and playful spirit and generosity with his art and talent, have touched many people in both communities, along with others who don’t live close, but love him and his art.
