Larry Moss Airigami Recreates Famous Art Works Using Balloons

Forget balloon animals -- the Larry Moss Airigami balloon structures are full-blown, life-sized recreations of celebrated artistic masterpieces from Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Vitruvian Man to Boticelli’s Birth Of Venus. The sculptures, which Moss has appropriately termed Airigami, are more than just proportionally accurate, they bring an element of character and life to these timeless pieces.

Moss’ extraordinary artistic achievements have been recognized by The Wall Street Journal, the Associated Press, CNN Headline, PBS, Smithsonian Magazine, American Profile and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! He also holds the Guinness record for the largest non-round balloon sculpture since 2000.

"Airigami stands at the crossroads of three ancient art forms: sculpture, puppetry and origami"  Moss says of his work. His creations, inspired by the greatest artists of the past, are also monumental in the art world as his medium is virtually one-of-a-kind.
