The curious paintings of Travis Louie can now been seen until the end of May 2011 at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle at The Creature Show.
Grounded in Victorian and Edwardian times, artist Travis Louis’s paintings provide us with a world where creatures and man coexist. Each painting a black and white photograph into fantasy that exudes a warped reality.

About the artist: Growing up in Queens, NY, Travis Louie watched many sci-fi and horror movies and was heavily influenced by the giant creatures on screen, and by 1950′s old pulp novels. The visual style of Louie’s work is mostly influenced by the lighting and atmosphere of German Expressionist and Film Noir motion pictures from the Silent Era to the late 1950’s.
