Travis Louie

Strange Discoveries

Travis Louie’s paintings come from the tiny little drawings and many writings in his journals. He has created his own imaginary world that is grounded in Victorian and Edwardian times. It is inhabited by human oddities, mythical beings, and otherworldly characters who appear to have had their formal portraits taken to mark their existence and place in society. The underlining thread that connects all these characters is the unusual circumstances that shape who they were and how they lived. Some of their origins are a complete muster while others are hinted at. A man is cursed by a goat, a strange furry being is discovered sleeping in a hedge, an engine driver can’t seem to stop vibrating in his sleep, a man overcomes his phobia of spiders, etc, … Using inventive techniques of painting with acrylic washing and simple textures on smooth boards, he has created portraits from an alternative universe that seemingly may or may not have existed.

  1. So happy to know I made a fellow blogger smile! 😀 Statistics are strange things… Don’t let the lack of interaction bother you. You are being ‘seen’ – and that in itself is monumental! 2,000 views? NICE! I’m heading over now to check out Mr. Wayne. I’m on pins and needles to see what YOU see in him. Have a GREAT Monday AND remainder of the week!
