Project 22 started with an experiment to see how much of the canvas Yaniv could cover without using a paint brush, by tilting it different ways. His challenge was to stretch colour whilst avoiding the colours getting mixed together. That first painting - Unexpectedly Designed - created from 22 different colours was a finalist in the 2017 Wallace Art Award and exhibited at the Pa late 2017.

Yaniv continued experimenting with the idea and two paintings later, he created Oceans and Skies - Out Of The Blue to express that at different times of the day, the ocean and sky appear in different shades of blue. It was selected as finalist in the National Youth Art Awards, and exhibited at the Waikato Museum in Sept-Oct 2018.

Yaniv continued building this body of work using different themes, primary colours, textures and directional elements. For each he used the same number of testpots on canvas because 22 is Yaniv's favourite number and his favourite birthday year. Each painting takes over 2 months to make to allow for different colours to dry without mixing. Some of the times Yaniv tilted the canvas on its sides and other times on its corners to cover more of the white background.

Other times he calculated the canvas-drying angles to create a weave effect - a combination of the colours going over and under each other. Yaniv thought about his audience hanging them on their wall. Because one experiences different pulling forces when looking at the work, whatever direction they choose to hang it, the art will tell a different story.
