Anna Chojnicka has been making astonishing art with bananas — no ink, paint, or stencils involved. Here’s more from the artist via TwistedSifter:
To make things even more interesting, Anna chose bananas as her medium, poking holes and depressing the skin, causing it to bruise. Believe it or not, no ink was used in any of the illustrations below! Anna adds:
“I just bruise the peel by pressing into it with a blunt point and the marking goes gradually darker over a couple of hours (so can create graduation of shades based on timing – by doing that darkest parts first).”
