Safety Pin Made Portraits on Banana Peels

Safety Pin Made Portraits on Banana Peels

When it comes to art and bananas, the most famous connection between them is the cover of The Velvet Underground & Nico album.

Following the footsteps of Andy Warhol, the artist known as Honey got her 15 minutes of fame by turning her favorite fruit into a piece of art.

Honey, who is the founder of Sweet Station – a weblog for designers and artists, loves exploring new techniques and doodling on whatever she can get her hands on. Since she always had bananas around the house, it was a matter of time before she used them as a canvas. The pen wasn’t suitable for the peel, so Honey tried scratching and poking tiny holes with a safety pin. As air would make the scratched bits turn brown, Honey was able to make stunning portraits using this pointillistic method. Hole by hole, it takes her from 20 minutes to a couple of hours to finish one banana-sized piece of art. It’s not hard to guess her favorite artists – there’s portraits of The Blues Brothers, Bob Marley, Jim Morrison as well as a scene from A Clockwork Orange and Jack Nicholson’s creepy stare from The Shining.

Not only these portraits are really admirable and rich in detail, they’re also rich in potassium. Honey loves snacking on them after she’s done photographing her art.
