Dai Dai Tran Plays With Puns and Symbols to Create Impactful ArtThis visual artist creates intricately detailed pieces that bring to question modern society’s ways.
Dai Dai Tran is a visual artist based in Paris, using his skills to create work that focuses on the reinterpretation of codes and portraiture. With a strong emphasis on creating visual puns, Tran’s pieces normally adapt preexisting resources into engaging works of art. His latest endeavor sees him cutting up cash to use as his primary material, resulting in intricately detailed art that criticizes and analyzes modern day. From recreating the Apple logo with both American and Chinese bills, juxtaposing each against each other with the name “Made in China, Designed in California,” Tran’s work offers a uniquely symbolic message. Check out more of his work on his Instagram here, while his work will be displayed in Beijing at CIGE 2015 (China International Gallery Exposition) from October 7-11, 2015.
