ABOUT THE ARTIST:

  • Emmy Award winner DONALD DAVIS is considered a national treasure and a legend in his own time.
  • Don is a Fellow of the International Association of Astronomical Artists, the rare cadre of realist space artists.
  • The artist's understanding of, and attention to, scientific detail is legendary even among his fellow space artists.
  • Calling himself  "a visual chronicler of the exploration of space", an asteroid has been named after him 13330dondavis.  
  • While still a teenager, he worked at the U.S. Geological Survey doing the first Lunar maps.
  • Few artists are capable of rendering the detail and painstaking accuracy needed for planetary mapping.
  • Don's maps are accurate enough to use for targeting spacecraft. Think about that. 


AWARDS , COMMISSIONS, & CITATIONS:

  • The artist won an EMMY award for his ground-breaking work in the classic PBS series COSMOS.
  • On May 13, 2002, he was awarded the prestigious Klumpke-Roberts Award by The Astronomical Society Of The Pacific (ASP).
  • The Klumpke-Roberts Award is presented in recognition of an individual's outstanding contributions to public understanding & appreciation of astronomy.
  • The artist worked on the PBS Planet Earth and Space Age series, on the series LIFE BEYOND EARTH.
  • His work appears in TIME-LIFE BOOKS, the SMITHSONIAN Museum magazine, NATURAL HISTORY and OMNI magazines, just to mention A FEW CREDITS.
  • His recent credits include the animation sequences of the outer reaches of the galaxy for the PBS series THE NIGHT SKY.
  • His film work and animation for NASA's JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory) includes the Voyager and Galileo flyby sequences.
  • He worked with the late Carl Sagan,frequently illustrating his books and articles.
  • He collaborated with Sagan on his essays in Sunday PARADE magazine.
  • The artist's work is now primarily digital and is often seen on the Discovery Channel and The Learning Channel in various documentaries on cosmic subjects.
  • He is a master of "over the shoulder" lighting, very dramatic, but a difficult exercise in executing the appropriate shadows.
  • The only other artist we know of who even comes close to this level of mastery of technique is Kawasi Hasui (1883-1957), the Japanese master of Shin Hanga woodblock prints.
  • We could go on; we're long time friends of the artist, and have been devoted fans for decades.
  • The artist, however, speaks quite well for himself on his own website.
  • For more essential information about the artist and this painting, please see www.donaldEdavis.com Space Art.
  • The decade by decade biography is accompanied by illustrations from each period.
  • Check out his sunset photographs, so breathtaking it's hard to believe they actually happened.

Are you adventurous?

We present three breathtaking videos by DON DAVIS, Space Artist Extraordinaire.

***

Discover the Universe with DON DAVIS, Space Artist Extraordinaire, who guides you into the wonders of the universe with three of his astounding new videos.

The first is a tour of The Whole Earth, seen revolving and evolving in ever increasing detail in outerspace,  through a collection of rare historic photos retrieved from the past several decades.  

The next is the eternal extraordinary contrast of dark enfolding and returning to light as seen during Lunar Eclipses, watched from distant parts of the earth, from the moon, and from outer space. 

The last is a breathtaking sorcerer's apprentice view of the recent Norway Aurora Borealis, photographed one frame at a time using a single lens 35mm camera, over several freezing nights, and then blending those single shots to recreate this fluid extravaganza.
