New Zealand artist Yaniv Janson's exhibition at the UN
While the Raglan environment might well be seen to be the inspiration for Yaniv’s work, it is global issues that motivate him. The art is a unique expression of Yaniv, a young man committed to the sustainable development goals of the UN.
With its colour, texture and form, Yaniv’s art invites people to experience it through a variety of senses and see the world through his eyes. It seeks people to understand, and strive for a better, fairer and more sustainable world.
Yaniv brings a unique perspective to art; he says, "I come up with my own ideas and I feel like I'm different from other artists, I can be myself through art".
Yaniv has epilepsy and autism; yet these have been no barrier to him achieving artistic recognition on the world stage and his dream of exhibiting at the UN headquarters.
Through his art Yaniv is seeking to encourage people to imagine, and contribute to, a world that is inclusive and fair – where all people can participate and work together to create a world that is good for all now and in the future.
Thank you to all those who made this exhibition a reality – the United Nations, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade for their support, all those who have taken the time to enjoy Yaniv’s art and, of course, thank you Yaniv for your skill and passion.
