artist feature #1.

I've also decided to add a new section to my blog where I feature an artist that I have come across and have taken a liking to.

This one I have liked for maybe 2 years. His artwork is really cute, enchanting and also could be a little eery at times. And he goes my ghostpatrol.

Bio (via Born In Hobart, Australia. Works and lives in Melbourne Australia. A self taught artist, Ghostpatrol has moved from the field of stencil art to exhibit his drawing based creations worldwide. He currently resides in Melbourne at his ‘Mitten Fortress’ studio. His work ranges form fine ink drawing, street-art, commissioned murals and soft sculpture.

Ghostpatrol creates worlds. His ongoing exploration of hybrid animals and forests travels across mediums; from pasted posters to soft sculpture, watercolours and printmaking. His work often references childhood nostalgia and pop culture, with often quite sinister and playful undertones. From beginnings in stencil and street art, his current practice focuses on ambitious installation and painting projects.

Here are some of his most recent wroks that have been upoloaded to his flickr (via
