Stephan Brusche, based in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, is an artist who uses bananas not only as healthy fruits, but turns them into artworks that are very interesting. It all started a few years back when he just started using Instagram.
Brusche was at work and he just wanted to post something. The he noticed his banana and he figured it would make a nice post if he 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.”
After that he tried to come up with new ideas for drawings while using the shape of the banana in all kinds of clever ways. Trying to keep pushing himself he eventually started to carve in the banana peel as well.
“They show the things I care about or like the most. Not a real agenda behind it. Mostly fun and whatever idea pops into my head when I look at a banana. Though I like to make more Bible Bananas just to show how fascinating that book is,” he said to Bored Panda.
“When I started I used anything that would fit nicely in the banana shape. I guess I’m mostly inspired by animals and popular movies.”
Brusche uses a combination of toothpicks, a knife, and a ball-point pen to transform his bananas. The whole process, from sketching out an idea to sharing it online, takes two to three hours.
“I draw on the banana with a regular ballpoint pen. After that I strategically cut away pieces of the peel to give it a more 3D look and feel. To hold pieces of the peel up I stick toothpicks in the banana behind the peel. Sometimes I also use paint,” Brusche explained to Mashable.
When the banana’s ready he snaps it on his iPhone, adds a filter and uploads it to his Instagram account.
