BEAUTY: Painting--Travis Louie
Brooklyn artist Travis Louie created a new set of paintings and drawings for a recent Seattle gallery show called "The Present Past." His usual anthropomorphic creatures featured in the show but this time all the subjects were actually endangered species. The gallery, Creatura House, stated, "These works depict endangered animals in Louie’s trademark Victorian daguerreotype painting style. Unlike previous works, the eyes are in color for all these creature’s illuminating that these species are still alive and need support and protection."
