Fruits are meant to be eaten.. But can they be turned into art?
Dutch artist Stephan Brusche has a unique sculpting talent! He can transform Bananas into stunning pieces of art. The 37-year-old graphic designer leaves neither skin nor flesh of the fruit to create yummilicious sculptures of a variety. From Animals to movie stars, his work features intricate designs, sometimes spanning scenes from the biblical era.
Brusche says the inspiration struck him out of nowhere. “It all started a few years back when I just started using Instagram. I was at work and I just wanted to post something,” he admits. “I then noticed my banana and I figured it would make a nice post if I just drew a little happy face on it. I took a ballpoint pen and just started drawing. I was pretty amazed how pleasant a banana peel is to draw on. So the next day I did it again, now a pissed-off face.”
The faces gave way to more detailed designs in the next few days, and he was able to creatively manipulate banana peel and flesh to mimic characters of movies to famous stories! He mostly portrays things that he cares about. He intends to make more Bible Bananas, “just to show how fascinating the book is.”
Here are few of his art pieces for your pleasure.
