Amazing Balloon Sculptures by Masayoshi Matsumoto

Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto creates some of the most complex balloon sculptures today.

From birds to sea creatures, to exotic animals, it seems no form is too difficult for Matsumoto to create. His artworks are made entirely of balloons and no other materials are used.

“I create animals, plant life and insects using only balloons. (Adhesive, marker pen, etc. are not used at all.),” he wrote on his Instagram account.

The balloon twister has elevated the inflated craft of balloon animals to a different level. Most of his works take around 3-6 hours to complete, depending on the complexity of the animal he wants to make.
