Biography from Old Hat Auctions:
Willie Moore was born in Hampton, Arkansas and moved to Houston in 1954 while in high school.  After graduation from Jack Yates High School in 1955, he entered Texas Southern University.  Moore was awarded the Jessie H. Jones / Mary Gibbs Jones scholarship and studied under John Biggers.  He graduated in 1961 with a Bachelor's degree in fine arts.

Moore taught art in the Port Arthur Independent School District and later served as an artist-in-residence at Galena Park ISD.  He was a technical illustrator for Civil Air Patrol at Ellington Air Force Base.  He supported himself as an independent sign painter for almost 20 years.  Since 1994, he has resumed work as a full-time artist exhibiting his work at the 19th Street Gallery in The Heights.

In addition to his paintings, Moore is a “sometimes” blues artist and a published poet, collaborating in his poetic endeavors with Lorenzo Thomas.  He currently has a book-length manuscript in progress written in dialect poetry and focusing on country life among black people.

Waiting for the Night Bus (Bus Stop) is Moore’s entry in the Annual Exhibition of Work by Houston Artists in 1959.
