They say practice makes perfect so Masayoshi Matsumoto, an artist who has been perfecting his craft for 10 years, should be pretty good, right? No. He's amazing. The guy creates balloon sculptures so intricate, every single one of his pieces seem to breathe with life.

Already my favorite

What makes Matsumoto stand out from the crowd is how insanely familiar he is with the material. "My creations are one hundred percent balloon-only," the 29-year-old told Bored Panda. "I don't use any adhesive, marker pens, or anything else."

I like this one because it doesn't have those gugoillie creepily bumps or bubbles. I know I have that thing about seeing frog eggs still in a frog kinda of thing and I don't know the phobia word for it.

Once you know that, the limbs, spikes, and other little details elevate his pieces to another level. Majestic mammals, graceful birds, and pesky insects with their incredibly textural exoskeletons are only part of the artist's body of work. Fauna aside, Matsumoto also portrays plants and fungi, including cacti and morel mushrooms.

i love how the deflated red balloon is expressed. (what do you call that on a chicken?)

"A lot of my work revolves around nature because I've been fascinated with it since I was very young," Matsumoto said. The artist added that his sculptures aren't products of spontaneity; they're the offspring of careful and deliberate planning. Once he's done designing a particular piece, Matsumoto usually spends 2-5 hours blowing and twisting the balloons.
