Janco was one of the most internationally famous of all Israeli artists. He began his career as an architect and was one of the founding members of the Dada movement at the famous Café Voltaire in Zurich. Janco continued working in Europe in a cubist style finally immigrating to Palestine in 1941. He became an influential teacher and founder in 1948 of the New Horizons Movement bringing Israel into the modern world of European art. His early abstract style evolved into a bold, angular, linear expressionism based on stylized and abstracted landscapes and figures. He was a co-founder of the influential Israeli art colony at Ein Hod.
