Jorn van Hoorn


Jorn van Hoorn (1982) started painting in 1999. In the next few years he evolved from a recently graduated Arts student (Sint Lucas) into a allround artist and televisionmaker at public broadcaster BNN.

Van Hoorn’s unique style transforms everyday objects into a different perception of reality. A translation that is at odds with our common understanding of these objects. What is reality? Is it a perception? Or just a learned reality? And have we started to see objects and their meaning as self-evident? Is a grenade love or just hate? Or is love a grenade?

He employs materials that work as a catalyst and fit with the speed of his thinking and working. A whirlwind, leaving behind a trail of paint, clay and graffiti. He prefers producing sculptures about love, beauty and the evanescence.

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 (2012). His work is currently represented by galleries in Amsterdam, Cannes, Neuchâtel, Reims, Gstaad and Genève.

In 2018, Van Hoorn won a Street Art Award (category: most inventive) and in addition he developed a unique art coin together with the son of Pablo Escobar.
