Jedidiah Dore is an Artist and Educator based in Brooklyn, NYC. He specializes in reportage illustration, painting, and drawing.
He is currently commissioned to paint a large-scale NYC Murals Project at the landmark Daily News Building in Manhattan and creating art for an upcoming exhibition for NASA. Jedidiah grew up by NASA Ames in Moffett Field Naval Air Station in California. When he was a kid he aspired to be an astronaut, drawing all the different spacecraft he imagined he would pilot on wondrous missions. That’s how he started learning to draw.
After moving to NYC to study painting and illustration at Pratt Institute, and inspired by his love for science and space exploration, he began an ongoing project called Stellar Science Series with much of initial ideas and concepts sketched on site. The project has taken him on great adventures to places such as Mars Yard for Curiosity Rover, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Deep Space Network, Johnson Space Center, Kennedy Space Center, and opportunities to create space art for Jacob Technologies, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, and exhibit art for NASA at Goddard Space Flight Center. Jedidiah and his work have been featured in various publications including VoyageHouston’s “Thought Provokers Series,” British GQ, and PBS, ALL Arts, Artnet, and in books such as "Pen and Ink", "Reportage drawing: Visual Journalism" (Bloomsbury, 2018), "STELLAR",and "NYC5 Over,Under,Through".
Today finds Jedidiah continuing explorations in reportage art and painting, enjoying work as a Visual Arts Educator and striving onward with the same curiosity and wonder he had as a boy piloting spacecraft to the unknown.
