Jimmy Tran is an emerging painter and drawer specialising in the creation of artist zines. A graphic novelist at heart, he is influenced by imagery from Japan and Japanese art, including traditional woodblock prints. He has a fluid graphic style that carries the reader through narratives that transition between banality and dynamic action sequences. Tran has worked in the Arts Project Australia studio since 2016, and his work is in private collections in Australia.
