Jason Hackenwerth, How to turn Ballon Animals into $449k
Jason Hackenwerth never stopped loving balloons, and lets face it, he's not alone. Inspired by sea creatures and plant life, this artist has taken balloons to a new extreme. His creations look like the brightly colored, alien-like creatures found in coral reefs, if those creatures somehow grew to dinosaur proportions. His newest piece aptly titled Ecstasy of the Scarlett Empress, is currently contending for a $449,000 prize at Grand Rapids Artprize, online voting taking place now.
