Vincenzo Musto began his journey into the world of balloon decoration in 1992 when
he opened his first balloon shop in Napoli in Italy. Curiously he focused on various
techniques and special effects but fell in love with the creativity of balloon art when he
discovered twisting. He now specializes in techniques to create balloon decor with
modelling balloons. In 2008 Vincenzo was invited to join Gemar’s Academia Masters.
His experience and natural passion for balloons made him a natural teacher. Armed with
enthusiasm he travels promoting the culture of balloons and teaching the techniques for
crafting balloon decorations. Vincenzo teaches worldwide spanning the continents of
Europe, Asia, Middle East and USA.
Claudio Casagrande opened his first party shop in 1991 in his home town Aprilia in Italy. He quickly realised his passion for the art of balloon decoration. Over the years he has mastered techniques to create sculptures using innovative techniques with G-link balloons. In 2006 Claudio was invited to join Gemar’s Academia Masters. In 2008 he participated in GEMAR’s G20 and the debut of Academia. Claudio teaches all over the world, spanning the continents of Europe, Asia, Middle East and USA
Lia has always been creative. At first, she was dedicated to the art of makeup, until one day she offered to create an exhibition of balloons. It was fortunate, since that first exhibition gave birth to a passion for the art of balloons that has made it a world leader in the industry.
As her passion and vision grew, Lia transformed into a true artist. She loves working with colors and adding accessories to create amazing and creative artworks. Her sculptures are always a little different, fun and innovative in all their beautiful details.
