Sculpted Air by Dizzy Doc
Over a period of 17 years, Aaron “Doc” Hay has built a career as one of the world’s preeminent balloon artists, creating dramatic sculptural installations and gallery exhibitions at venues across the world.
Doc favors working on a grand scale to create unexpected depictions of subjects from a forty-foot-long, 4,000-balloon Tyrannosaurus Rex to a magical circus arena, complete with a full troupe of nine trapeze acrobats, life-size elephants and a ringmaster taming a tiger. He has constructed models of architectural landmarks such as the New River Gorge Bridge and has even brought an underwater scene to life with giant bus-sized fish that thrilled fans at a rock concert in 2009. Each of these works required thousands of balloons to execute.
As much as building the grand and complex designs, Doc enjoys making the smaller but equally amazing toy balloon sculptures for groups of party and festival goers. Watching Doc build his artistic creations adds to the fun and excitement of any event.
