About this product
- DescriptionWhat is so special about autistic artists? For one, their art stands out of the crowd appealing to wide audiences. Janson's colours burst out of the canvas - as reflected in the book. His success path is a powerful message of hope to 'special needs' artists and their families - that dis-ability can be transformed into extra-ordinary ability. Autistic artists don't go down well-trodden paths so the visionary quality of their work appeals to collectors looking for the next trend. This is why Dubuffet named a whole movement Art Brut (the French for 'raw art') in the 1920s. Yaniv Daniel Janson developed his messages using visuals on canvas to express what he could t say in words - and to show pictures of our environment in a changing climate that most of us would rather avoid thinking about... In doing so, he t only challenge his own communication difficulties but transcended this condition to send a message to all of us... The book is a visual representation of Yaniv's perception of the world with some of his thoughts on environmental concerns. The book also includes a teacher sequel with pointers on how to develop key competencies with students affected by communicative disabilities via the art medium.
- Author BiographyIn the first 2 years of his painting career, Yaniv Janson featured in over 30 exhibitions, 14 of these as solo artist and sold over 90 paintings in the USA, Europe and other parts of the world. In December 2010, he will feature in his third international exhibition in Paris. Janson's budding talent has been recognised by arts critics as being part of the local talent pool (Waikato Times) and arts personalities such as Natasha Conland, Curator Auckland Art Gallery who selected his painting as a finalist for the Trust Waikato National Contemporary Arts Award ( Yaniv's colour and texture combination is unique and exciting ). Similarly, the three judges for the Wallace Trust Arts Award (Linda Tyler, Director of the Centre for New Zealand Art Research and Discovery with Dick Frizzell and James Robinson, well known New Zealand artists) recognised his talent by selecting him as a semi finalist for 2008. These are two of the most prestigious Art Awards in New Zealand, and Yaniv was the youngest artist featuring in both. So far, Janson has received 10 awards for his art and leadership... just as he is turning 18.
