He attended the Art Students League in New York in the 1930s, participated in the WPA artists program, initiated by President Franklyn Roosevelt to allow Black artists to receive federal grants for art supplies.  Masood Warren earned a Bachelor of Arts from New York University in 1939 and a Master of Fine Arts from Temple University in 1961.

Masood Warren has exhibited at the National Academy of Design, the American Watercolor Society, and the National Arts Club, and several of his works are in the Richard Allen Collection at St. Luke's Church in New York City. Masood Warren died in 1995 leaving an unparalled legacy of artwork encompassing the daily scenes and people of New York City.
