Hi, my name is Yaniv
Yaniv Janson is a young New Zealand artist from the small coastal town of Raglan. His work centres on his great passion for environmental and social issues and this has been reflected in his art works.
Living with both epilepsy and autism, Yaniv doesn't let either dictate who he is. He began painting 13 years ago and creates the work from home, enjoying the freedom of determining his own schedule. He can choose when, where and what to paint and loves that it is something that people all over the world can enjoy.
Being awarded over 18 awards, participating in more than 40 exhibitions and having sold in excess of 180 paintings, Yaniv is far from finished.
Introducing our team
"Yaniv has a rare understanding of colour and composition. But his work is not just pretty pictures - there is some kind of intent behind his work. He is using the idea of kinesthetic art where you have to touch it to get the sensation and get an idea of what he is feeling when he is painting it."
Leafa Wilson, Curator of Art - Waikato Museum
"Art is a unique expression of Yaniv, a young man with autism, and a young man committed to the sustainable development goals of the United Nations. Yaniv has shown that his disability is no barrier to his success as an artist on the world stage."
