French street artist Dran uses his artistic talent to criticize society, and it’s conditioned conventions. Typically ironic in approach, his similarities to English graffiti artist Banksy have earned him the nickname, “the French Banksy”. 

Dran’s social criticisms are varied in scope, and although many of his works are naturally playful, they manage to retain their intended message.

Finally, I would be remiss if I did not mention Dran’s site, it has a lot of cool interactions built in (don’t click on the spider!).
