Pumped Up

Remember when you were little and a terrifying man would come up to you in a clown costume wielding balloons and contorting them into phallic-shaped swords? Ahhhh. The good old days. Maybe that was just one of the horrors of growing up in South Wales with low-budget children’s parties, but balloon modelling has never been at the top of my list of favourite things. That was until I found Masayoshi Matsumoto. Matsumoto is a balloon artist who uses solely balloons in his creations. That’s right. No glue. No tape. Nothing. Pretty awesome. What I’d give to have that dodo in a bell-jar. Balloon anyone?
