We recently stumbled over these balloon sculptures by German artist Hans Hemmer (b. 1960) who lives and works in Berlin. Inflatables, preferable made from yellow latex, have been his most important artistic means of expression. One of Hemmert’s most well-known works is German Panther, 2007, a tank made entirely out of balloons.
