Travis Louie

Travis Louie’s mind exists in an alternate universe. He is reporting his findings. It all seems to exist in some Irish hedge grove.

Travis Louie was born in Queens, New York, about a mile from the site of the 1964 World’s Fair. His early childhood was spent making drawings and watching “Atomic Age” Sci-Fi and Horror movies. There were many Saturday afternoon trips to the local comics shop and noon matinees at the RKO Keith’s cinema on Northern Blvd. , where he marveled at the 1950’s memorabilia: the rocket ships, the superheroes, the giant monsters, and old pulp art covers. He did thousands of sketches of genre characters like Godzilla, King Kong, and a host of creatures from Ray Harryhausen movies.

There are stories. Like rumours in his mind. He hears whispers. Finds paintings. Its the kind of work you could take to your cottage. And spend a weekend. Living in.

Details. Unbelievable work. Seems to come from some long ago dark age. A world of empire. Perhaps fascist. At least one of power. Kris Kuski. Fascinating stuff. Always easier to look at or imagine than to live in.
