We often give you a reason to say “Okay, this is new!” and once again you’re probably going to use this phrase when we show you the work of Stephan Brusche. Stephan uses a really unusual medium for his art. We can only imagine the agony his mother went through when he was a kid, trying to teach him not to play with his food. Little Stephen didn’t listen obviously but turned out just fine. Just look at what is his capable of doing with an ordinary banana! A real piece of art some would say.
Brusche doesn’t limit himself on bananas; he likes to use other fruits as well for his work, but bananas seem to be his favourite. Personally, I like it and I’m quite impressed how he manages to put so many details in such a small field. Scroll down the gallery to become impressed yourself with this banana art of Stephen Brusche and read what he has said for BoredPanda.
1. “It all started a few years back when I just started using Instagram. I was at work and I just wanted to post something.”
2. “I then noticed my banana and I figured it would make a nice post if I just drew a little happy face on it”
3. “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”
4. “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.”
5. “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.”
6. “Though I like to make more Bible Bananas just to show how fascinating that book is.”
7. “When I started I used anything that would fit nicely in the banana shape.”
8. “I guess I’m mostly inspired by animals and popular movies”
