About Vincent Di Fate:
Since the late 1960s, Vincent Di Fate has enjoyed an international reputation as one of the world's leading artistic visionaries of the future. People Magazine has written that he is “one of the top illustrators of science fiction…Di Fate is not all hard-edge and airbrush slickness. His works are always paintings – a bit of his brushwork shows – and they are all the better because of it.” In his prolific career, he has produced art of science fiction, astronomical and aerospace subjects for such clients as IBM, The Reader's Digest, The National Geographic Society, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Di Fate has received many awards for his work and was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2011 and the Illustrators' Hall of Fame in 2019. He was also a Guest of Honor at the 50th World Science Fiction Convention in Orlando, Florida in 1992 and has been an honored guest at regional SF and fantasy conventions throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Di Fate has had his paintings exhibited in group and one-man shows at museums and galleries throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Japan. His work is included in the collections of the National Air and Space Museum (Smithsonian Institution) and the U. S. Air Force Art Collection in Washington, D. C., the Society of Illustrators in New York, and many more. He was also commissioned by NASA in 1985 to create the official painting of the International Space Station, which is currently on display at the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral.

He has also produced three major books and is currently writing a fourth book on the subject of illustration and its use in science fiction films. In addition, Di Fate has lectured extensively about the history, methods and meaning of his craft and has been a consultant for MCA/Universal, 20th Century-Fox, Walt Disney Productions and MGM/United Artists. He is a full professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and was the co-creator of FIT's MA and MFA programs in Illustration and was formerly the Acting Chair of the MA program. He is also a founding member and past president of the Association of Science Fiction/Fantasy Artists, and co-founded FIT's Film Program which began officially in the Fall of 2014. He studied at the Phoenix in New York City (later incorporated into the Pratt Institute as the Pratt Manhattan Center) and holds a Master of Arts degree in Illustration from Syracuse University.
