Matsumodo has crossed all boundaries of creativity and has taken balloon art to the next level. His art-form comes with unprecedented details.  The artist uses the tiniest bubbles and variations in color to suggest details like texture on a living object. He has focused mainly on animals and not solid objects. Some of his more impressive designs include an iguana, a hermit crab, a sea horse, and a goat.

Balloon folding origins are uncertain, sources says that it started around in the early twentieth century in the United States.  Balloon animals are documented to have emerged in the late 1930s or early 1940s. His art displays remarkable detail in animals; the contours of the balloons and their colors suggesting the form of a real-life animal.  Even more impressive, Matsumodo is able to recreate the details to create a look of natural symmetry.

Matsumodo’s art is fulfilling its real-life inspiration to such extents that each animal has its own detailing of texture, some show the real-life capabilities, like the turtle that can actually float on water!  But the real draw is the detail: notice the contours around this turtle’s eye, suggesting an eyelid. His designs are all the more impressive because of the lack of glue, wire or tape used in their construction.  Matsumodo uses only balloons and air, twisting the tiniest details with his hands or teeth.

Miraculously, he’s able to twist and sculpt the tiny details into precise position. The artist’s creative hands give the art a life-like dimension by twisting and detailing the latex. Matsumodo has two accounts on tumblr where he posts his works. His animals have no material used besides balloons. Though he uses few other aids like marker and tapes.

Matsumodo gave his art touch of reality,  Using black-light balloons he created jellyfish which appear to have the same bio-luminescence as the real thing! Matsumodo’s work has attracted international attention; clowns, magicians, and other entertainers clamor to learn his secrets.  He’s also netted several awards for his work, which shows no signs of slowing down.
