A Heart of the World




Yohanan was born in Canada in 1950 and currently resides in Israel. Yohanan studied at the Bezalel Acedemy of Fine Arts in Jerusalem, received his Bachelor of Arts from Hebrew University, and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University in Montreal. Yohanan's artistic talents have been recognized in the creative arts community in multiple areas.  During his career he has served with numerous prominent institutions as a leading graphic designer, interior designer, curator, art director, and theatrical resident director.  Yohanan’s creativity and innovation have culminated in his creation of various new art forms including the soft art technique which he developed and considers the media of the future. Through this technique, acrylic and felt fabrics in an infinite variety of color combinations, mixtures, textures, and transparencies, are artistically blended into exciting layered pictures and collages. The soft paintings are then needled together in an innovative technical process for permanency, creating flat, flexible and durable surfaces. The harmonious multi dimensional effect achieved by soft art represents a breakthrough in original art forms. Yohanan’s unique and striking works of art are exhibited at the Tel Aviv Museum, the Bet Agron International Press Center, and the Binyanei Ha'Uma Convention Center in Jerusalem as well as in many private and corporate collections around the world.
