This Japanese Artist’s Balloon Animals Will Definitely Blow Your Mind

Japanese Artist’s Balloon Animals 1

Brought to you by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!

At just 25, Masayoshi Matsumoto is  a master of what has to be a niche form: balloon animals. You think you’ve seen balloon animals before because you saw a clown at a friend’s birthday party when you were nine. But Matsumoto’s creations are on another level entirely. The detail is jaw-dropping. He uses no markers, no adhesives, and no sealants to make these animals: just balloons. And yet his owl looks stern, and his iguana has scales and spines and expressive eyes, and his hermit crab seems surprised. He doesn’t do just animals, either. He also has a series of anime and video game characters, for which he will occasionally use embellishments with markers and accessories. You can see more of his work on his Tumblr, Facebook, or Twitter pages.
