Dran is a French street artist from Toulouse who 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 humor and morbid side to criticize modern culture, often tackling topics concerning art, creativity, and the freedom of expression.”
