"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."
