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.

Enlighten couldn’t help but feel these sculptures would come alive while looking at them. We’d love to share some breathtaking pictures with you.
