David Booth [Ghostpatrol]'s 'Stone Marker Head' sculpture
Stone Marker Head, 2016
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.
Measuring 16 x 19 x 6 cm with synthetic polymer & lacquer on pine.
