art: Jason Hackenwerth does amazing things with balloons!

14 Mar

After seeing the incredible window schemes at Bergdorf Goodman we had to look up Jason Hackenwerth, and boy are we pleased we did.  This is pure art, and by using balloons as a medium, art in it’s most creative form.  Forget Hurst with a pickled shark (too gruesome), and Emin with her unmade bed (too obvious) this is not only expressive, it’s also fun.  Something we at AP. think most artists have forgotten – in todays world to get noticed the urge is to shock, and Jason displays wonderfully the whimsy of art . . .

Jason not only creates freestanding sculpture in this form (as seen above), he also creates out of this world portraits (as shown below).  Looking like a still from a sci-fi movie this prints are something that will be sure to create a talking point at many dinner parties in the future.  You can buy limited edition prints directly from his website by clicking here.
