Internationally award-winning balloon artist Pieter van Engen has made a name for himself with his unique style of twisting and his modern and aesthetically pleasing balloon photography.

Pieter started his career as a musician, studying bass guitar at the Dutch Academy of Music. After graduation, he performed with several touring groups. In 2005, he visited the Millennium Jam in Belgium (his first balloon convention) and it changed his life. Although he continued to tour as a musician, he started performing balloon and magic shows as well. In 2010, Pieter stopped performing as a musician and became a full-time balloon artist, entertainer, and innovator in the field of balloon modeling.

Pieter has won several prizes in balloon competitions and was awarded Ralph Dewey’s “Rising Star” Balloon Excellence Award in 2009.

His work is seen in magazines, instructional DVDs, and books around the world. He has taught classes all over Europe, Asia, and the US.
