Writing + Art

Erik Moe’s artistic and literary practice is an interdisciplinary and collaborative one, often combining art forms in contexts outside the gallery or the printed/electronic page: poetry written to guide walks; text sampled in to drawings and maps; dialogue generated by and for all of the above.

In 2015, Erik created Future Cartographic, a playground for writing and collaboration, and a home for imagining utopias beyond our time.

Erik is currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at CalArts (California Institute of the Arts). He holds a BA in Liberal Studies from Temple University in Philadelphia.


As a communications advisor and editorial contributor, Erik has developed opinion pieces and written on film and culture since 2003. His work, and work developed collaboratively for his clients, has been published in, Elle, Huffington Post, Atlas Obscura and elsewhere. As a graphic designer and art director, he has created branding for social justice nonprofits, pizza trucks and a Democratic presidential candidate. As a digital strategist he has directed national teams working for economic justice and electoral victories.
