Okay, so you’ve heard of Origami – the 17th century Japanese art of paper folding and sculpting that has since become a modern art form. What about Airigami? Ever heard of it? Airigami is the fine art of folding air and uses a blend of three art forms – origami, sculpture and puppetry. Propounded by internationally known airigamist Larry Moss, airigami uses air filled latex balloons to recreate famous pieces of fine art. Of late, Larry’s artwork has become so popular that it has received a lot of national and international media attention (AP, CNN Headline News, PBS, Today Show, Martha Stewart Show, White House and Wall Street Journal).
Larry has recreated various famous works such as Boticelli’s Birth of Venus, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, James Abbot McNeil’s Whistler’s Mother, Cezanne’s Still Life, Andy Warhol’s Campbell Soup Can, MC Escher’s Self Portrait in Reflecting Sphere and Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, to name a few. The art form is novel and the Larry’s work is absolutely amazing. The creativity, ingenuity and attention to detail are mind blowing.
You can purchase limited edition airigami prints at the Airigami Gift Shop. The prints are signed by Larry and his international team of balloon artists who helped in creating the works of art. The prices range from $257 for an unframed print of ‘Looking Up’ and go upwards to $3,000 for a set of four framed 20” x 30” silver halide prints comprising ‘light snack’, ‘ looking up’, ‘off to nana’s’ and ‘rats’.
