Phileas Flash

AKA: Rupert Appleyard

(Edmonton, AB)

Phileas Flash (aka Rupert Appleyard) is an international award winning British artist who has been creating large scale balloon sculptures and entertaining people internationally for the last twelve years. Originally the ring master for a small touring circus in the UK, he first decided that he wanted to twist balloons when he saw his brother, the clown, hand a simple balloon flower to a senior citizen. The combination of his acclaimed balloon art and high octane entertainment, puts his work in hot demand both in Alberta and worldwide. Look out for him roving around the Street Festival site this year and be ready to join in the fun!
