Fantastically Freaky Creatures by Travis Louie

Ready to be spooked? Roq La Rue Gallery is currently hosting Travis Louie's The Creature Show. Louie's creepy cool paintings are from his tiny drawings and many writings in his journals. His imaginary world is created from Victorian and Edwardian influences and his inspirations range from his fascination with human oddities and circus sideshows to old Vaudeville magic acts and Victorian portraits.

His website shares that “to achieve the dramatic ‘mood' in his paintings, they are produced primarily in black and white or limited color. Using inventive techniques of painting with acrylic washes and simple textures on smooth boards, he's created portraits from an alternate universe that seemingly may or may not have existed.”
