Japanese Artist Creates Insanely Detailed Sculptures Using Nothing but Balloons
Masayoshi Matsumoto is a self-taught artist from Japan who twists ordinary balloons and creates mind-blowing realistic sculptures that could turn any party into a real wonderland. He doesn’t use any glue or adhesives, which makes his technique even more remarkable. A pink octopus, a scary cobra, a majestic flamingo — these are only a few examples of his creations, which were inspired by his love of nature.

Masayoshi doesn’t sell his sculptures and doesn’t offer his services at parties.
He pops his sculptures after showing them to people on his Instagram page. He also makes tutorials for anyone who wants to learn how to make these sculptures on their own.
Why, in your opinion, does Masayoshi not sell his sculptures, but destroys them instead? Would you do the same with your works of art, if you made any?
