Japanese Artist Takes Balloon Animals to a Whole New Level
Viral| | By Mauricio Castillo
Balloon animals have always been somewhat of a fixed art, established by its uses of the “usuals:” a balloon sword, a dog (or is it a horse?), and the like.
For Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto, these usuals are hilariously too simple.
Matsumoto has taken the art of balloon animals to a whole new level. Over four years of perfecting his craft has led to some unreal creations.
Check out some of them below:
The level of detail is astounding…
Who doesn’t love a turtle?
Matsumoto’s creations go back to prehistoric times too
It’s not just animals either!
Okay, now this is getting ridiculous.
OK, now he’s just showing off.
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
These creations are straight out of Alice’s Wonderland.
Sadly, Matsumoto tells Upworthy that when he is done with his creations he usually “pops them.” I say they should be in museums somewhere.
