How amazing is the fantastic world of Travis Louie, an American artist from New York! Inspired by the Victorian and Edwardian age, the artist’s characters – humans, animals, weird beasts and otherworldly creatures – are depicted like having their formal portraits taken, but in unusual circumstances.

The artist says about his work: “I think the human race is full of misunderstandings based on people holding too close to their own cultures and being unable to embrace the idea that people can believe in other things and still get along in a reasonable sort of way.”  He adds that he created these characters as a sort of “veiled commentary on racism and the immigrant experience”.
