In the hands of a child, paint is just a toy – but in the hands of a master, it is the tool of his art. In Tim Thurmond’s hands, balloons are transformed into masterful works of art. For over twenty years, Tim has been challenging and changing the world of balloon artistry – a world in which comic book characters are breathed into full-size life, lifeless animals can walk and fly, and paintings of the great masters are recreated into living art. A world of wonder and joy where the hustle and stress of daily life is literally blown away. A world that constantly transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary.
