Yedidya Hershberg was born on August 4, 1988 in Jerusalem, Israel and devoted himself to painting from an early age. Both his parents are painters and his earliest memories of their work, studios and home brought to bear a powerful and indelible impression on him both visually and formatively. At age 14, he began joining the Jerusalem Studio School Master Class summer programs to Italy. These intense summers imparted a deep love and overwhelming preoccupation with the history and act of painting and drawing that soon overshadowed the more conventional requirements and expectations of established schooling.
In 2006, Hershberg joined the Jerusalem Studio School’s 4 year Master Class program. After completing his studies, he moved to Brooklyn, New York. In 2016, he attained an MFA in Painting from the University of New Hampshire.
Yedidya Hershberg is currently represented by Rothschild Fine Art, Tel-Aviv and his works are included in private collections internationally. He is the Artistic Director of The Jerusalem Studio School and an Assistant Master Class Instructor at JSS in Civita Summer Art School & Residency.
