Discover the artist Jarno Hannu:
Creativity is the driving force in Jarno's life. He designed interiors of retail chains, built stages for the most famous festivals and realized catwalks for the biggest brands on earth. Until a major fire in his home and workshop made his life's work go up in smoke.
After a period of couchsurfing, it becomes clear to him who his real friends are. Couchsurfing became untenable and Jarno became homeless, he ended up in Het Inloopschip in Den Bosch for the first time. There too, his creativity and desire for freedom distinguished him from others. He decorated Het Inloopschip with a huge mural that also shows the clock of St. John, the icon of Den Bosch. He painted this clock at five past ten, the time you had to be inside to be allowed to spend the night in Het Inloopschip.
He picked himself up, refused real help, full of ambition and confidence he tried to stand on his own two feet again. He started painting and drawing more and became curious about tattooing. Unfortunately it was too early and he ended up in Het Inloopschip again. This time he was open to help and he is linked to a very inspiring aid worker, his wingman.
The limitations of Het Inloopschip oppressed him. Sleeping indoors was required to qualify for assistance. The negative energy of other residents and the limitation of his freedom made this impossible for Jarno. His wingman understood this and gave him permission to sleep in a tent, free outside under the stars. With help and an inexhaustible drive to get his life back on track, Jarno once again manages to escape the homeless problem. He was assigned a house in Den Bosch and now lives there with Noa, his three-legged black cat.
“Be inspired and inspire others is his motto. Despite all the challenges and tough times, Jarno is grateful for the road he has traveled and the things he has learned from it. It has shaped him into the beautiful person he is today.
On Jarno's design you see a briefcase. A suitcase with a heart in it. This symbolizes friendship and the giving and taking of love wherever life's journey takes you.
