Twenty five years ago, Larry Moss was performing his balloon art on the streets of New York City. Today his sculptures are famous world-wide. He calls this art form Airigami, or 'the fine art of bending air', and we are not talking about those little balloon animals beloved of party entertainers. Larry Moss and his fellow artist Kelly Cheatle have spent the last 12 or so years creating life size balloon sculptures, even buildings made of balloons. Whether it is a small private party or performance art, a community project or a large scale installation, these ambitious balloon sculptures only last a week or so, before the balloons shrink.
The pictures here include Larry's take on the Mona Lisa, a giant beanstalk, a wedding dress, and William and Kate on their wedding day.
