Artists Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle have been using airigami to create “full-blown” installations that enchant both young and old for more than a dozen years, and – whether it’s a ten-room haunted house (Balloon Manor), the world’s first piloted balloon sculpture (Fantastic Flying Octopus) or a runway fashion show – they bring people together in the way that only the best public art installations can.

Artist Larry Moss began his career 25 years ago as a NYC street performer, but has gone on to display his amazing air-filled art in 12 countries on four continents.

World-renowned for his “full-blown” installations that enchant both young and old, Larry began creating two-dimensional fine art in 2009, combining balloon sculpture with photography. The result, Master Works, is a series of parodies of iconic masterpieces. Moss continues his exploration of combining balloon sculpture and photography with fine graphic illustration in Once Upon a Time.

Building community through large-scale art creations is of particular interest to Larry. He has coordinated teams of artists and volunteers to build massive
installations, including a record-shattering sculpture (Soccer Players, Belgium, 2000), a piloted balloon sculpture (Fantastic Flying Octopus, Sodus Point, 2003) and four haunted houses that raised more than $80,000 for health charities (Balloon Manor, Rochester, 2004, 2006-2008).

The author of many published instructional books, Larry also has a degree in Applied Math and Computer Science, as well as a Master’s in Elementary Education.

His achievements have been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records, the Associated Press, CNN, PBS, Smithsonian Magazine, American Profile, Cabinet and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! He has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show, on NBC’s Today, and at the White House three times. Read Less
Artist Kelly Cheatle has been fascinated with micro art since the age of 10, when she read an article about scientists etching miniature angels on the head of a pin. Since then, she’s created miniature, wheel-thrown teapots and highly-detailed crochet sculptures – both small enough to sit on a penny.

Artist Kelly Cheatle has been fascinated with micro art since the age of 10, when she read an article about scientists etching miniature angels on the head of a pin. Since then, she’s created miniature, wheel-thrown teapots and highly-detailed crochet sculptures – both small enough to sit on a penny.

Kelly received her Design degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a minor in Illustration and a major interest in every studio elective she could find. Her diverse knowledge of traditional materials and image-making techniques has given her an appreciation for texture and dimensionality, even in digital formats.

ln 2001, she founded Greener Pastures Design & Illustration, and her graphic work appears nationally. The Arts & Cultural Council logo is among her many local accomplishments.

When given an opportunity to work with balloons during Balloon Manor 2006, she was excited about a new medium for creating artwork. Now, as a partner in Airigami, her design sense and illustration background have helped to take it in new directions, including designing fashions that have appeared on runways in Rochester, NYC and Las Vegas.
