The “Balloon Banksy,” who’s been leaving wildly tricky creations outside of Hudson Clearwater and the Printing Space within the West Village, is 66-12 months-vintage retired electrician Joel Klein.
Klein, who has also been in the balloon business for FORTY years and runs Large Head Balloons, started putting up his creations a couple of months ago and tells us, “I’m retired. i have so much of time. I just like doing it. It’s not to get trade, so most of the time I don’t positioned any contact knowledge. I simply know that people love it.”
Balloons have been fashioned because the Flash, extraterrestrial beings, and a tremendous cow. “It’s at the trail of individuals going to the subway,” Klein maintains.
“Other People say it makes their day, it makes them happy . . . The doorman loves it . . . A GUY advised me he walks through on a daily basis in order that he can ship an image to his daughter. That form of feedback is superb.”
Klein, who notes a balloon is actually costless, has a résumé that comes with Barack Obama’s Fourth of July celebration, appearances in Primary Park, the “Lately” show and Martha Stewart.
