Custom Inflatable Art Makes a Statement

When it comes to art, size is often important.  Custom inflatable art sculptures and installations can be as big or small as the artist envisions, allowing artists to make a statement either way.   For example, in artist David LaChapelle’s work Death by Hamburger, the giant size of the inflatable hamburger was needed to convey the satirical message of the work.

With inflatable art, sculptures and installations can be brought to life in virtually any size and dimensions the artist envisions. 

Inflatable Art Sculptures and Installations Make Traveling Easy

Many art installations travel around the country, sometimes even the world.  Traveling and transportation can be hard and expensive when it comes to sculptures and installations made from traditional art media such as stone or wood.  However, inflatable art sculptures and installations are easy to travel with and cheaper to transport.  After an art show is done simply deflate and pack your custom inflatable art into the provided storage bag to transport to the next show.  Depending on the size of the artwork the inflatable may even fit in the back of a car.  Once at the next show, just unpack and inflate.

An excellent example of traveling art installations is David LaChapelle’s “You’re in My Head” inflatable sculptures.  These inflatable sculptures were part of Smirnoff’s Midnight Circus event that took place in various cities around the world.  Since LaChapelle’s sculpture was inflatable, it was easy to transport and set up at Smirnoff’s events around the world.

Using Air as an Element of Art

With custom inflatable art sculptures and installations artists can utilize air as an added element to their art piece.  For example, artist Lewis deSoto utilized air in his art piece Paranirvana (self-portrait) to add to the piece’s symbolism.  This custom 26-foot-long inflatable sculpture is said, by deSoto, to symbolize “being released from the cycle of death and rebirth”.  In this case, the inflatable sculpture’s blower provided the piece with life and death as it, quite literally, breathes life into the art piece.  When the blower is unplugged, the custom inflatable deflates symbolizing death.  The custom inflatable sculpture is then reborn once the blower is turned back on.
