Yaniv Janson is a young artist and political commentator. Through his art, he works to raise awareness about environmental and social issues and to move audiences to create impact. He has exhibited his work extensively in New Zealand and abroad. Yaniv’s passion is to give a voice to more disabled people whilst contributing back to society:
“ Working towards crucial environmental goals allows Yaniv to give back to his community by proving that disability is not a barrier to achieving and sharing a social message with others”

Janson’s animation on the website of the New Zealand Human Rights Commission [hrc.co.nz/yanivjanson/impact] and his books featuring art, social change and education illustrate his ideas, works and concepts, and inspired his work with international organizations such as the UNESCO and Apple.
"I have had the privilege to observe Yaniv’s creative journey since he enrolled as a student at The Learning Connection. In the beginning Yaniv could not explain the inspiration and thought processes behind his work. He would instead talk about how it was created; maybe assuming it would satisfy our need to understand the ‘why’. Since those early days Yaniv has learned to explain his unique view and experience of the world linguistically. Interestingly, this development influences his visual language and creative processes leading to a new body of work".

Expressing unique and subjective points of view is an ethical and esthetical examination at once, and it is in that exact spirit that made
