The Work of Hans Hemmert



Yes, yes, I know that I have featured this notion of balloon art in the past, via the work of Jason Hackenwerth. However Hans Hemmert uses balloons in a slightly different manner. Instead of creating large, organic creatures, Hemmert builds us utilitarian forms, such as this church or tank. A transformation occurs when a piece of religious architecture or an army vehicle is rebuilt with hundreds of colorful, playful balloons. I like it, a lot.
