Fine Art Created Out Of Balloons

airigami-fine-art-balloon-sculptures

As some of you remember, I wrote an article about the creative uses for a balloon when it comes to preparing food. Or rather, sinful food that is. Of course, balloons can be used for a lot more things than preparing food, making your party a little bit more awesome, and sending up weather instruments into the sky. Yeah, there are about a million more uses a balloon can have really, but we won’t go through them all here. Nope, we will simply focus on one thing in particular. It’s something that most of us have seen at some point but not quite to the extent that this article is going to show it. If you have a few hundred balloons laying around, maybe you could even get inspired to try this out yourself. Who knows, you might harbor the skills necessary to pull it off.

Balloon pioneer and team leader Larry Moss and his dedicated team decided to take the art of balloon bending to new heights, and they inflated a few fine art pieces out of balloons. Yeah, entirely out of balloons, and by the looks of it, it must have taken quite a lot of planning and time to achieve. There’s no doubt what the balloon creations are based upon, but the Mona Lisa in particular is one hefty feat. How can you not be blown away (no joke intended) by these masterpieces.

Larry, who calls his art “airigami” managed to take some of the most legendary and mysterious art pieces and recreate them out of just balloons. The story doesn’t say how many balloons it took before each piece of art was completed. However, it is clear that they must have tried quite a few times before they got the scales right, and of course, until every balloon kept its air inside it. I guess we are so familiar with the clowns who blow up the balloons and bend them into a dog, only to come halfway and the balloon goes pop. Well, the art pieces are done and photographed, and they are certainly a testament to great creativity.
