Jorn van Hoorn
Jorn van Hoorn (1982) started painting in 1999. In the next few years he evolved from a recently graduated arts student into a cross-over artist and televisionmaker at public broadcaster BNN.
He did his first solo exhibit when he was 19 years old at Galerie Kuijpers. Soon after he followed up with other expositions abroad and in The Netherlands. Amongst these was a museal exhibit at the Van Der Togt Museum in Amstelveen. In 2016 Van Hoorn was nominated for a Street Art Award (together with Daan Roosegaarde and the Rijksmuseum).
In 2017 Jorn participated in an unique collaboration with artist Sascha Kessel. They made the Escobar Coin. The official artcoin is signed and authorized by the son of Pablo Escobar; Juan Pablo Escobar.The exclusive coin is handmade of noble metal, has a diameter of 120cm, and weighs more than 20kg. The coin was unveiled at the MIF in Maastricht. Look at Escobarcoin.com for more information.
Jorn’s unique still is laden with iconic images and people that change one’s perception on reality. He employs materials that work as a catalyst and fit with the speed of his thinking and working. Working at a breakneck pace, brushes, spatulas and hands are the weapons of choice. A whirlwind, leaving behind a trail of paint, water and graffiti. Preferably he abandons easily recognisable forms. In other work he prefers producing series about time, beauty and the evanescence.
