Incredible Balloon Sculptures of Animals and Insects by Masayoshi Matsumoto


balloon-3

Don’t show these to your kids unless you want them to be completely underwhelmed by every balloon animal they see for the rest of their lives. Japanese balloon twister Masayoshi Matsumoto makes some of the most intricate balloon sculptures I’ve ever encountered. From prickly iguanas to glowing sea creatures it seems no life form is too difficult for Matsumoto to faithfully interpret using nothing but balloons. You can follow more of his work on Tumblr and on FB. (via Neatorama)

Animal Lovers Look Out.

Surreal photography is something that baffles the mind, and stimulates the imagination.  It’s a rough style to pull off, and often requires quite a bit of photoshop manipulation.  However, some, like Russia’s Katerina Plotnikova have taken to the practical approach.  The animals, (yes all of them) in this photo collection are real.  There’s no visual trickery, or compositing, Katerina invests the time to use real animals in all her shots, and it pays off tremendously.  In an interview Ms. Plotnikova had this to say about working with the animals in her visually stunning work.

Of course they are real! The fox, for example, is a real domesticated animal. His name is Adyssey. He has a bit difficult temper, but he is very loved by his owner. All the animals that are in my photo shoots are treated really well. Sometimes, I even think that their owners treat them better than their own kids!

The photographs were captured in the ocean during the Hawaii-based photographer’s deep dives. “My photos are to show people things they haven’t seen before… or maybe things they see all the time… in a way they’ve never cared to look,” Lambus writes. Lambus is a veteran of deep dives, having logged hundreds of dives for both personal and commercial purposes. The dives are held in the darkness of the night in water that is thousands of feet deep. Lambus ventures deep under the surface to photograph the animals as they float by.

Hong Yi Plays with her Food

Almost every day for one month, Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi created a fun illustration made with food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs.
