I was lucky enough to catch self-taught Melbourne artist Ghost Patrol’s latest exhibition recently, and it was magical. Ghost Patrol’s work ranges form fine ink drawing, street art, and commissioned murals to soft sculpture.

Ghost Patrol’s work is playful, yet slightly sinister, and is full of forest imagery, hybrid animals, and magical children wearing capes. Not to mention some of the creatures he has created, which if you look closely, are made up of thousands of tiny colourful trees.
