GhostPatrol

Ghostpatrol has illustrated himself into the contemporary art scene with a bestiary of perplexing characters. Drawing inspiration from public graffiti, and applying these lessons to minutely and carefully illustrated ink drawings, GP has perfected a non-antagonistic form of graffiti that can be seen across Melbourne's public walls.

His works place him amongst contemporary illustrators including David Shrigley and Marcel Dzama, and demonstrate a curiosity for science and the natural world - a children's book turned upside down and viewed through a magnifying glass.

Birds, Bears and People are rendered with the exaggerated proportions most frequently associated with Manga and Anime.  They expand and shrink to fit the space they are given, and seem just as appropriate in a brunswick lane-way as they do within the confines of a traditional gallery space.
