I think you could just say that St. Louis born artist Jason Hackenwerth makes gigantic aquatic balloon animals and that would be enough to entice a lot of people just to at least take a look at his work. But after saying that, you also have to at least follow up with the fact that they really are beautiful pieces of art that invoke a real sense of wonder and inhabit a space in a surreal way that must be very engaging in person. It’s a fascinating little niche he has carved out for himself and I would love to see some of his work in person.
