Japanese Artist Creates Balloon Version of Animal Kingdom

Art is everywhere.

Remember the time when we were kids and we were amazed at how this circus artist created amazing figures out of balloons? They even created at least one balloon animal among many other things. Art is just everywhere; we just need to keep our eyes open to see them. But this tradition of balloon-twisting is dying. Published documents reveal that Herman Bonnert from Pennsylvania was the first balloon-twister (Val Andrews, Manual of Balloon Modeling, Vol. 1, An Encyclopedic Series). The culture had grown during the 40s, but now we rarely see it happening, except in few circus acts.

Masayoshi Matsumoto seems to be reliving the art of balloon-twisting. In the article with Upworthy, he says that it took him years to learn the craft, and he had always loved creatures since childhood; most of his works are based on real-life animals. And boy, they are amazing. Here are some collection of his works:

1. Japanese Salamander

2. Neon Jellyfish

3. Mouse

4. Ostrich

5. Night Owl

6. Parrot

7. Pelican
