It doesn’t look like anyone ever told Stephan Brusche not to play with his food, but that’s just fine by us. This imaginative artist, based in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, regularly turns bananas into creative and light-hearted works of art.
Brusche is not one to turn away other fruits as well, but he seems to favor the banana. We like it too, because it shows how much an artist can do even within a narrow and seemingly limiting field like banana art. For more about his art, read his interview with Bored Panda below!
“It all started a few years back when I just started using Instagram. I was at work and I just wanted to post something,” Stephan Brusche told Bored Panda. “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”
“After that I 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 myself I 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”
“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”
Thank you, Stephan Brusche, for talking to Bored Panda about your work!
