These amazing balloon sculptures by Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto will blow you away

If you think that clown twisting balloon animals that look like pieces of longganisa strung together at your childhood birthday party was impressive, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto takes inflated balloon animals to Super Saiyan levels, creating some of the most intricate and imaginative balloon sculptures you have ever seen.

Ranging the gamut from insects, crustaceans, and lizards, to animals and anime characters, each highly-detailed piece of balloon art takes Matsumoto about two hours to complete — without the use of glue, tape, or adhesives. Some of his more complex creations even take up to six hours.

You can follow more of his work on his Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook.
