ABOUT the Artist

         24-year-old balloon artist Stone Johnsen takes his art form to a whole new level by creating giant-scale, life-like, and interactive balloon sculptures, as well as jaw-dropping balloon art for people of all ages! Stone's sensational balloon art has dazzled Hollywood celebrities and performers, and has been the highlight of birthday parties, corporate events, fundraisers, festivals, conventions, and other events all around the globe! 

         Stone started his journey in the world of balloon art when he was only 9 years old. Over the years, what started simply as a fun hobby transformed into a rewarding career. At the age of 15, he started taking his art form seriously and began booking birthday parties and other events in and around his hometown of East Longmeadow, Massachusetts. 


         After graduating high school, Stone began traveling around the world twisting balloons and bringing joy and amazement to those around him. 


         Although Stone is currently based out of Portland, Oregon, he continues to travel worldwide to entertain guests at all sorts of festivals and conventions!
