Balloons go Pop!

Last week people around the world were bombarded with news about balloons. The balloon boy and his attention starved parents were on every channel for what seemed like endless hours. It’s quite sad that other balloon folks, those from the Balloon Art World Challenge, were overlooked by most press outlets.

Held in Bangkok, the challenge pits balloon decorators and artists against one another in competitions to create art from balloons. The entries were quite impressive. But none were as fantastic as Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe portrait made from balloons.
