Original by​ Dominyka Jurkštaitė

Everyone would love Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto at their birthday party. This remarkable balloon artist has already made a name for himself but now he’s back with even more incredibly intricate animal and insect sculptures.

“I started making these seven years ago. I was really inspired by wildlife pictures and wanted to see if I could create realistic animals of my own,” said Matsumoto.

His pieces take the self-taught artist a minimum of two hours to complete and more complex project last up to six.

All of his work becomes even more stunning when you realise that Matsumoto doesn’t use markers, stickers or any other supplementary material – ever. His multi-colored animal kingdom is made purely out of blowing and twisting balloons.
