Whatshisname Comes Out With A Pooping Balloon Dog

The anonymous UK artist who goes by the moniker of Whatshisname has done it again. After bringing us the Good Puppy (a pooping Chihuahua lamp) and Good Boy (a pooping Great Dane floor lamp), he has a new version.

Pooping Balloon Dog


The POPek is a pooping dog like his predecessors, but – in an unmistakable nod toward artist Jeff Koons – it’s a balloon dog!

The defecating balloon animal is available in three sizes, the largest of which is 3D printed in fiberglass. The other two sizes are cast in polyurethane resin, painted red (or black as in the case of the smallest size) and sprayed with a glossy lacquer.

Before the balloon dogs are finished, painted and lacquered, they go through a lengthy process of filing, priming and filing and priming to make sure they are smooth.
