Whimsical Banana Art by Stephan Brusche

Dutch artist Stephan Brusche uses bananas as his canvas for his highly imaginative fruitdoodle series. He probably likes other fruit but he particular favors the banada for his whimsical banana art.  He takes full advantage of the banana’s shape, peel and soft drawing surface for his delightful renditions.

He stumbled on the idea when he first joined Instagram. He said, “I just wanted to post something. I then noticed my banana and I figured it would make a nice post if I just drew a little happy face on it.”

Drawing eventually led to the carving of the peel in all sorts of clever ways.  His inspiration comes from many sources – be it iconic images or a nod at classical paintings.  Stephan takes his Instagram photos with his iPhone 4S.  It is a wonderful collection of fun art for sure!
