French street artist Dran, also known as the French Bansky, creates gloomy satirical pieces to shed light on current issues in the world.

The dark images depict a twisted world of concerned children and adults who bury their concerns within, much like the world people live in today. French street artist Dran emphasizes the world in which television is becoming the new Bible, marriages are becoming increasingly fragile, smartphones and social media are overpowering relationships and urban cities are invading natural landscapes. This emphasizes the unspoken underlying current in society and relationships that fester within and are rarely spoken of or confronted. The artist's dark images allude to a potential downward spiral the world may encounter if things are not brought to light or rectified within the near future.
