You hear the words ‘unique’ and ‘original’ thrown around quite a lot these days. I use them myself regularly. But every now and then you find an artist who truly deserves those terms to be used in relation to their work. Travis Louie is one such artist. His work is quite hard to describe. In a nutshell he makes traditional turn-of-the-century styled portraits of very strange looking ‘people’. It’s almost like looking at a family album from a ye-olde freak show.
