Balloon sculptures were once the reserve of birthday-party clowns, but they’ve since become a little more serious – just ask Jeff Koons. Robert Moy, founder of The Brooklyn Balloon Company, creates elaborate balloon sculptures which amaze adults as much as children, and his success has led him to collaborate with the likes of Marc Jacobs and Deutsche Bank. As fans of his work, GARAGE asked Moy to get creative for an exclusive video. Two days and 150 glossy black balloons later… we have Moy’s recreation of Keith Haring’s iconic Five Dancing Guys (1987). Post-pop art… BANG!
