The 2014 World Balloon Convention took place in Denver, Colorado earlier this year, yielding a ton of exciting sculptures that were surprisingly intricate. Not the average creations from a street performer, these large scale artworks are full of wonderful details that essentially form inflated illustrations that many people, not just children, will appreciate.
From a ferocious tiger lunging out below a tall tree to an ancient samurai soldier decked out in a striking suit of armor, the submissions for the 2014 World Balloon Convention are impressive. These works of art are worthy of being placed in gallery halls. If only they lasted longer than the average inflated balloon. Sadly, they are temporary sculptures that will live on only in images.
It will be interesting to see what is shown at the next World Balloon Convention.
