Infusing his own Israeli cultural energy into his balloon art, Cohen has won several awards for his balloon sculptures. He has made a menorah out of balloons as well as several impressive wearable sculptures.

6. Mac Balloon

With a computer mouse that looks like a mouse (e.g. rodent) and a keyboard with labeled keys, we liked this computer balloon even though it wasn’t as elaborate as other balloon creations on our list.

7. Balloon Motorcycle

This balloon motorcycle looks so sturdy that we thought it was a ride at first. While you’d be hard pressed to sit on this balloon creation, much less take a ride, the detailed engine and realistic size left us impressed.

8. Balloon Fair Ride

8. Balloon Fair Ride

This balloon creation has several parts that make it fun: first, with its color scheme, it looks like a fair ride. Second, the swings on this fair ride are very well done and have little balloon people in them! Third, there is a ticket booth attached, and fourth, it even has guard rails around the edge.

9. Balloon Couch

This two-tone couch is more of a showpiece than a usable couch, but it features a crisscross design that makes it look like a real couch. It also has layers that give it more depth than other balloon creations.

10. Balloon Toilet

Since toilets have been featured in art museums before, we don’t think it a stretch to call this balloon toilet a work of art.
