Ever thought about turning your banana into a vivid sculpture? That’s what Japan’s Keisuke Yamada had been enjoying for three years now.
Most people think of a bananas as a great on-the-go snack, high in potassium, and great with porridge. Not no Keisuke Yamada. For he has seen potential in this bent yellow food and instead turned it in humorous banana sculpture. Until he gets hungry, that is...
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.
