Story of the bear
Bjørn is my birth name, and in Norwegian language means bear. Hornnes is my mothers birth surname, it was given from her father Bjørn Erik Hornnes. He was a very wise man and beleived in family traditions and unity, he passed away too early. His death left a little scar, hard to grow. We often spent time discussing different topics of history, politics and beliefs. Time would go on and my grandfather Håkon from my fathers side would reach out for help with computers, and this turned into nights with drinks of good whiskey, country music and stories from his youth. My name is Bjørn Haakon(Håkon), it is a combination of my mother and fathers first name. In me both live. Bjørn Hornnes is a tribute to Bjørn Erik Hornnes, to keep the memories and his legacy alive.
I am educated as a artist and Bjørn Hornnes is my artist name.
