What do you get when you mix sculpture, puppetry and origami? Rochester, New York duo Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle have developed 'Airigami,' the not-so-ancient art of folding balloons. Their process combines different styles and forms to create balloon creations you would be hard-pressed to find at a birthday party.

But don't think their creations will be your average poodle and sword balloon animals; these Airigami masters are taking on the classics. From Leonardo to Warhol, see some of the most iconic masterpieces lighten up a bit. Is Mona Lisa's smile still as mysterious? Is Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" still so coy? We think not. However, these Airigami masterpieces might give Jeff Koons a run for his money.
