Datsun Tran is an Australian multidisciplinary artist, his work primarily features the natural world, though it is about us, the human story. His work has explored themes of conflict and utopia. The subject matter is often filtered through the lens of what we have in common, rather than what separates us.
From the smallest drawings to the largest public artworks, Tran makes his work with a wide range of mediums. His influences include traditional Chinese calligraphy, cinema and photography. His early interest in George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ also influenced his subject matter.
Tran has exhibited extensively in Australia, as well as North America, Asia and Europe. He has had over 25 solo and group shows, exhibited in over 30 art fairs, and has been a finalist in over 40 art prizes.
