I am officially the Senior Artistic Editor of this website and I have been negligent in my duties. What does a Senior Artistic Editor really do? Find super cool art stuff(s) that everyone would love to share so that the story and the artist go viral. Well, there really isn’t such a thing as a Senior Artistic Editor, however there is a need for me to fine really cool stuff so you can share with your friends and this site and artist can go viral.
Now that we are on the same page, how about a banana? Or two? Not just any banana but a banana carving? These crazy creations are the work of an artist known as Keisuke Yamada. As you can imagine all of the possible corny headlines for this story:
- Japanese Banana Art is So Damn Appealing
- Top Banana Keisuke Yamada and his cool banana art.
- This Guy’s Art is Bananas
- Size Does Matter ….(Oh wrong article)
Keisuke is a self-taught artist who not only makes these sculptures with painstaking detail, he does it with a spoon and toothpick! To top it all off, he has to work fast because an exposed banana has a very short life expectancy.
Keisuke actually does this in his spare time. He is an electrician by trade however he rose to fame as an artist when he uploaded his banana creations to the website Pixiv. As soon as people realized how great he was, things went viral and Keisuke’s life has been “bananas” ever since. Sorry I couldn’t resist.
