Project omschrijving

Jorn has 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 BNN.

He did his first solo exhibit when he was 19 years old. Soon after he followed up with other expositions abroad and in The Netherlands and 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 by the son of Pablo Escobar.

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.
