Yaniv Janson

Yaniv Janson

Yaniv is a contemporary artist inspired by the works of Hundertwasser, Matisse and Monet.  There are no doubts there is a strong element of emotional connection with the striking pieces he creates.  As an artist he has a deep ability to communicate his inner world and concern for the environment as we know it – especially climate change.

Hum became aware of Yaniv’s work via a friend and ‘Morale Officer’, Rob Akscyn.  Rob bought the painting from Yaniv in 2012 and identifying a certain idiosyncrasy to his work and the projects objectives gifted it to Hum. It was among a number of paintings Rob admired in the living room of Yaniv’s  parents home in Hamilton.  He was quite taken with the “serene ‘wave-y’, textured flow of it — as it bespoke a quiet, understated simplicity.”
Yaniv’s works are sold and held in galleries and private collections both domestically and around the world including Europe, the Middle East and Canada.  He has exhibited over 50 times, including internationally at the Haifa Bet Aba Hushi Arts and Culture Centre in Israel and at the Galerie Celal in Paris. Yaniv is indeed the youngest guest artist at the Wellington Academy of Fine Arts.Yaniv masters the technique of balancing intent with spontaneity while working the canvas in a free form approach applying colour and water straight to canvas.  There are subtle three dimensional effects that come into play as water, paint and canvas interact.The artwork ‘Ecoternity’ we are auctioning on the Gala night has spent some wonderful evenings on the Hum’s office walls projecting serene glorious tones.  Rob aptly states;

Ecoternity by Yaniv Daniel Janson

“I’ve enjoyed Yaniv’s paintings over the years I’ve known him — but must confess this one is my favorite.  Indeed, my mind can see its green waviness, its understated serenity — no matter how far away I travel.  For like all great art, Yaniv’s painting invites the viewer to participate, to become part of it, and thereby allow something profound to happen — a loving connection that stays in your soul forever.  [Robert M. Akscyn, Santa Ana,
California]”
