Famous scary paintings recreated as balloon art

We’ve all witnessed the art of cool balloons, whether it’s at children’s birthday parties or carnivals. But there is the art of the ball, and then there is the ART of the ball. As in the art of the balloon based on the most famous artistic paintings in history. Thanks to the people of Neatorama, we came across the creations of DJ Morrow. And Morrow’s skills go way beyond “look at that puppy I made”. Among his various works, he has meticulously recreated some of the most famous works of art of all time, as you can see here:

The first is both mind-blowing and, frankly, quite disturbing. It is based on the legendary 19th century painting by Francisco Goya Saturn devouring his son. You know, the painting that shows the Roman Titan Saturn devouring his own offspring lest he knock them down. It’s a bit of a nightmarish painting. And maybe it’s even scarier in Morrow’s hot air balloon recreation.

Speaking of mythologically based beheadings… Morrow also has an artistic balloon rendering of Caravaggio’s painting of 1598. Judith beheading Holofernes. So if you’ve ever wanted to see a woman cut off a man’s head in a kid-friendly way, now you know such a thing exists.

The Nightmare by Henry Fuseli, this recreation of balloon art painting is amazing and spooky.

Staying on the trail of “the most terrifying paintings in history,” Morrow also has an intricately crafted balloon version of The nightmaree. This work is based on the 1781 painting by Henry Fuseli. The original painting was quite dark. But it’s somehow more off-putting when recreated using rubber and latex.

On his Balloons in Bold site, you can discover other unique pieces by DJ Morrow. He created tribute balloons to Charles Darwin and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And there are even some old-fashioned ones in his gallery, based on jurassic park, Marvel Comics and The nightmare before Christmas. To purchase some of his artistic recreations, be sure to visit Morrow’s Ballons in the Bold Etsy store for postcards and prints.
