“I’m influenced by a lot of different things. If I could narrow it down a bit, I would say that motion pictures have been the strongest influence on my paintings. I’m particularly fond of the Film Noir pictures from the 40′s and 50′s. The genre of Film Noir is a uniquely American group of films that emerged just after the second world war and stretched until about 1959( the release of Orson Welles’ Touch of Evil) It is strongly influenced by German expressionism, nuclear-age paranoia, and general fear of “the red menace”. I’m influenced by the mood and the lighting of these movies and sometimes the themes in them as well. I also really enjoy looking at old images of Sideshows and turn of the century magic acts. I love the way mysticism and the occult used to be portrayed back then.” – Travis A. Louie
