David Booth [Ghostpatrol]'s 'Big Blue Dolphin' sculpture
Big Blue Dolphin, 2017
Working under the pseudonym 'Ghostpatrol', David Booth first made a name for himself on the walls of Melbourne’s laneways. Working with ephemeral techniques, by 2007 Booth had built an international reputation as a leading street artist. However Booth’s practice, grounded in a passion for drawing and sketching, has always been split between street-based works, including temporary sculptures and installations, and that of a contemporary studio-based practice. As a result Booth sees his role often floating between that of a contemporary artist, commercial designer, mural painter and artistic collaborator.
