Strange Visitors: The Art of Travis Louie
AFA Gallery - New York, NY
Brooklyn-based artist Travis Louie is exhibiting his old- timey portraits of otherworldly characters at AFA Gallery starting on October 17. Influenced by German Expressionist and Film Noir movies from the silent era until the 1950s, Louie has created a body of work that features human oddities, personified animals, and mythical beings, all set in Victorian and Edwardian times. Each of his characters even has their own backstory, which he writes prior to creating his paintings using just black and white or a minimal color palette.
