Welcome to Keisuke Yamada’s world of banana sculpture!

Ever thought about turning your banana into a vivid sculpture? That’s what Japan’s Keisuke Yamada had been enjoying for three years now.

Keisuke Yamada’s Banana Sculpture

Why bananas?

With the question ‘how wonderful would it be, if peeling off banana skin can reveal a vibrant scene?’, Mr Yamada started his journey with banana men. Now it takes him about 30 minutes to complete a sculpture using spoons and toothpick. Mr Yamada has created different facial emotions, the Simpsons, mermaids as well as all different animals. However, the fact that bananas turn black due to oxidation means these master pieces can only exist in photos forever.
