Yaniv Janson


Yaniv Janson is a gifted fine artist living in Raglan, New Zealand. Over the past decade, he has achieved national and global recognition for his impactful and soulful work. His pieces simultaneously raise environmental awareness, encourage social activism and inspire disabled people to pursue their passions wholeheartedly.

Pieces have been showcased in over 40 exhibitions across 4 countries and have been recognized with a collection of awards, scholarships and sponsorships. More than 160 of his paintings have been sold and collected in New Zealand and overseas. Now in his late 20’s, Yaniv’s mission is to continue creating pieces that encourage an active conversation about the environment and inspire audiences to create change through art and creative expression.
