This Artist's (Surprisingly) Gorgeous Medium: Bananas

Yelena Melnichenko

Romanian artist Dan Cretu carves intricate geometric designs into bananas. Each banana retains its original form, but features brightly colored, elaborate cut-outs. The medium of fruit is nothing new to Cretu, an avid food photographer who sells his pieces on Etsy.

His pieces are all made from organic materials and his photographs are not digitally altered. Check out more of his pieces on tumblr, where you can also see some of his non-banana works.
