At some point, you've probably seen a magician or an entertainer captivate an audience by creating some really sick balloon animals. Perhaps you even took home your very own balloon poodle or rabbit...only to have it deflate or pop days later. Still, witnessing such a feat is quite the experience.
Masayoshi Matsumoto takes any balloon animal you've ever seen and puts it to shame. The Japanese artist uses balloons to create animals, insects, and even people with more detail than you've ever seen before. He does this without any tape or adhesives, making his creations even more amazing.
Matsumoto's animal creations are more detailed than the poodles from your childhood.
Matsumoto also makes some pretty terrifying creepy crawlers.
He even excels at creating balloon people!
Look at that dress!
This Venus flytrap looks awfully hungry.
This balloon dino comes complete with ferocious claws and teeth.
Perhaps the most impressive pieces in Matsumoto's collection are his luminescent animals.
The artist also recreates popular characters, including cartoon and anime stars.
