Masayoshi Matsumoto is a 27-year-old artist who makes works of art out of a rather unexpected material. From hornets and caterpillars to walruses and buffalos, the Japanese artist uses multicolored balloons and his own two hands to create a variety of detailed insect and animal life that are as playful as they are inventive. By taking something that children love and applying his creative touch, he gives life to rubber masterpieces that adults can easily appreciate. His work shows that balloon twisting isn’t just merely a cheap party trick, proving that creative expression can—quite literally in Matsumoto’s case—come in any shape or form.
