Using a technique similar to pointillism, multimedia artist/YouTube sensation Phil Hansen transforms banana skins into his canvases, recreating some of art history’s most famous works with a push pin. As the fruit naturally browns, his designs magically appear. Crazy, right? Hansen has a book on the project due out next month, Tattoo a Banana: And Other Ways to Turn Anything and Everything Into Art , but in the meantime, click through to check out more of his work, as well as a fascinating time-lapse video of his artistic process.
