See the Amazing Art Created from Bananas

Living in Rotterdam, Netherlands, Stephan Brusche is doing something very creative with bananas. A few years ago, he discovered that this yellow fruit can actually serve as a perfect canvas, so he started making art.

“It all started a few years back when I just started using Instagram,” Brusche said. “I was at work and 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.”

“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.”

Can bananas get sick? Actually they can! And some are threatened by the Panama Disease now. But lucky for us scientists are hard at work to save the banana! And @ferchuckygarcia is one of those scientist. And he actually invited me to talk a bit about my own work with bananas during a Lunch Lecture he organized at Wageningen University on the 8th of February at 12:30 pm. Professor Gert Kema, head of the banana research group at WUR (Wageningen University & Research) will also talk about his work with bananas. Check out the link in my story today or the highlight section on my profile. . Besides this event there will also be a exhibition of my banana art starting from the 8th of Februari till the 15th of March. For more on that check out www.wageningennur.nl/impulse .
