Remember those animal-shaped balloons you saw during parties as a child? This artist from the Land of the Rising Sun will surely make you love them all over again!

When it comes to balloon art, we believe no one does it better than Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto. As anyone can tell from the photos below, this artist is definitely someone who has obviously dedicated his tihis craft. His animal and insect creations look fun, visually stunning and very detailed!

What’s even more impressive is the fact that Matsumoto does not use stickers, tapes, markers, or any other materials for his colorful sculptures. It’s all just blowing and twisting balloons for this guy! And according to him, it takes from 2 to 6 hours to finish each piece so you can just imagine the amount of dedication and passion he has for it.
