BRIAN POTVIN IS THE BALLUSIONIST
A former MMA fighter and theater major, Brian Potvin has taken his creativity and determination to new levels with the help of balloons. As the Ballusionist, Brian now performs on TV, at posh parties, art events and corporate celebrations creating unbelievable works of balloon sculpture.
In 2003, divided by his passions, Brian began working as a clown at parties to help pay the bills. He immediately saw the opportunity that was ignored by his competitors. As a clown, he had the chance to reinvent himself constantly, to create, to work with people and to expand his knowledge of the arts; all while having a blast. In a few years, he found that he could create anything he wanted with balloons. He also found his voice in creating the balloons — making jokes, amping up the party and creating a whirlwind of wonder.
The makeup came off and he started spending hours twisting latex to make the things he loved, like movie and comic characters, as well as anything he could imagine. Since then, he’s had the chance to share his balloon creations on TV shows around the world with hundreds of celebrities including Gwen Stefani, Dean Kane, Sascha Baron Cohen and David Arquett.
