About

A Southern California native, Max DeMoss was educated at Claremont Graduate School. DeMoss’s father, who emigrated from Greece in the 1920s, frequently took his young son to Los Angeles museums, and taught him to appreciate Classical Greek and Roman art, and the Great Masters. Throughout his career, DeMoss’s work has echoed his early affinity for the Classical aesthetic. Often using the fragmented form, DeMoss’ subject matter ranges from the figure to Biblical allegory, from abstract to narrative. DeMoss has exhibited in galleries throughout the United States and his sculptures reside in fine art collections nationally and abroad. He is frequently asked to develop work for indoor and outdoor, private and public spaces, and specializes in sculpture for sacred spaces. His work at The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels (“the LA Cathedral”) in Los Angeles, California, has brought him national acclaim. DeMoss’ sculpture also graces Catholic churches in Rancho Santa Fe and Laguna Hills, California, as well as Scottsdale, Baton Rouge, and Fort Worth.  You will find Max on any given day in his private studio and foundry, amid orange blossoms and ranch dogs, on the ten-acre citrus ranch he shares with his wife Carolyn in Hemet, California.
