"My name is Dran, born in Toulouse in 1979, my father wanted me to work with him in construction, but since my arms are too thin to hold a hammer, I dedicated myself to drawing." Straddling that strange divide between cute and twisted, French artist Dran works across installations, paintings, sculpture and street art. Pictures on Walls said of Dran: "Artists like Dran don't come along very often - someone who combines charm, insight and humour. And who can actually draw. Dran hails from Toulouse, South West France. He was introduced to the world of comic books by his father and inspired by cartoonists such as Herge and the Gallic tradition."
On Friday evening we launched 'You Blow My Mind' - East London- based multimedia artist Lauren Baker's debut show.
A big thank you to everyone who came down to the private view, it was a really successful, eclectic evening and it was lovely to meet you all. Special thanks to Chuck Noble - our photographer for the evening, Bulldog Gin for supplying G&T's all night long and Kieran Collins for the great tunes.
Take a look at a selection of photos from the private view below.
The show is running until 24 January 2014 so don't miss the opportunity to come and enjoy Lauren's unique style and endless creative diversity.
