French street artist Dran uses his art to comment on issues concerning contemporary society. Being donned "the French Banksy" by some, his approach to street art is similar to the English graffiti artist in tone and message. Dran utilizes his dark sense of humour to criticize modern culture, often tackling topics concerning art, creativity, and the freedom of expression. These recurring themes in Dran's works are often depicted through children equipped with crayons.
The artist brings to light the naturally imaginative mind of children while questioning the suppression and imprisonment of such creativity. Dran also criticizes social issues including the modern era's rise in failed marriages, the inability of couples to connect to one another despite sharing an intimate bed, environmental destruction paving the way for more condos, overconsumption and waste. Each hard-hitting issue is presented in its own whimsical manner while retaining its heavy message. Dran is definitely an urban artist to keep your eyes on!

Dran , Adrifts
