Director Biography - Maurice Porcher

Maurice Porcher, AKA Moe the Mōs, was born in Harlem, New York in 1978. Most of his formative years were spent in the mixed middle-class neighborhood of Teaneck, New Jersey. He attended Norfolk State University for a stint, and decided to leave school early to pursue a music career.

After releasing a solo project entitled HIStory in 2013, Maurice went back to his roots in writing and poetry. In 2018, he became a published author by writing a young adult anti-novel named ‘Entendre’. In March of 2019, along with his best friend Karim Staine, Maurice started an artist collective named PAINE ARTISTRY. PAINE ARTISTRY is the self-proclaimed voice of artistic struggle, and through resources, content, and merchandise they encourage all artists to ‘own their struggle’ in order to own their craft.

Maurice travels the world searching for new adventures while documenting anything and everything worth discovering! It’s these journey’s that are imperative to his writing process, as his experiences with many diverse cultures have expanded the scope of his reality. Moe's newfound perspectives are captured in his poetry, writings, and reflections.

Combining his gift for storytelling, his artistic platform of Paine Artistry, and his passion for world travel, Moe came up with the docu-series OPUSXTRAVELXART. As the creator and host of the show, Maurice curates the creative journey of each starring Artist. By doing so, he provides the story behind the Art that we love, bridging the gap between Artists and enthusiasts.

Director Statement

Opus Travel Art is like Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’, but instead of food being the catalyst, it's Art! I use my skills as a writer and storyteller to capture the uniqueness of every Artist in relation to their environment. Whether it’s music, fine art, dance, film, photography...I travel the world to give a broader voice to the artists who create what we consume. Especially those who are up-and-coming. OPUSXTRAVELXART brings light those artists who help shape the trends and culture we love by exposing their humanity and struggles. I believe by understanding that these artists are not too different than most people, will help to bring out the best in other creatives.
