Japanese Artist Creates Beautifully Complex Balloon Animals

Balloon art taken to another level.
Publish date:

Everyone has probably had a balloon animal before, probably when visiting a fairground or when going to a birthday party as a kid and getting the clown to make you one, but they were all pretty basic when you compare them to the work of Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto.

Matsumoto takes this art form to another level and everything you see below is created using just balloons. That means no cheating with paint or marker pens to create their detailed features such as eyes, patterns and markings.

Matsumoto also creates balloon art of cartoon characters which can be found on a separate Tumblr blog. You can follow the artist on Twitter and Tumblr.
