"Stephan Brusche’s whimsical sculptures made from bananas transform boring office lunches into magical, tropical escapes. The Netherlands-based artist creates his banana sculptures by etching dark brown lines into the outside of the peel and carving away other portions of it to reveal pop culture figures, zoo animals and parodies of famous paintings.
Brusche creates many of his masterpieces at mealtimes. The bananas are often pictured with a backdrop of a kitchen counter, breakfast cereal boxes or an office desk. A tiger banana even appears lurking in a potted office plant. Brusche posts his artwork on Instagram and Facebook via the hashtag #fruitdoodle." http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/stephan-brusche-banana-art
"WHEN 37 year-old graphic designer Stephan Brusche started using Instagram he had no idea it would be the beginning of a popular and edible career.
“I was at work and I just wanted to post something,” Brusche told news.com.au.
“But there wasn’t much to photograph. 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,” he said. He said the response has been great, and led to the publication of his first fruitdoodle book, collecting his first 50 fruitdoodles.
The Dutch artist has also started, occasionally making a collection of drawings and crafts with gnomes who mostly die a horrible death. You can’t accuse him of anything but originality.
