Masayoshi Matsumoto apparently doesn’t know what the word “average” means as he twists ordinary balloons and turn them into beautiful pieces of inflated artwork! His art pieces are purely made out of intricately twisted balloons and specializes in creating balloon sculptures of animals, insects, and plants. By “purely” we mean, no adhesives, no seals, no pens—just balloons.

We decided to share this homegrown Japanese talent’s brilliance with you by rounding up some of his most awesome works of art.

#1 First Up is an American Bison or What We Commonly Refer to as the American Buffalo!
