The Bruised Banana Art of Anna Chojnicka

The Covid-19 lockdowns have had a very different effect on people. While the boredom made some depressed, it actually helped others discover hidden talents. Take Anna Chojnicka, who started creating adorable banana peel artworks.

To pass the time and keep her creative juices flowing, social entrepreneur Anna Chojnicka started experimenting with banana peel oxidation as an art medium. Instead of doodling on canvas or paper, she decided to simply bruise bananas with thin, blunt objects and let oxidation do the rest. The bruised peel becomes darker as the hours go by, revealing the design etched into it.

Anna partially bruises the banana with the blunt end of a comb or pin, allows the designed to darken, and then continues with the rest of her artwork. It’s a time-consuming process, but then again, she started doing it to pass the time, so…

From intricate scenes that require a strong knowledge of light and shading, to detailed portraits or goofy illustrations, there seems to be no limit to Anna Chojnicka’s banana bruising capabilities. She has been posting a banana artwork a day since the UK lockdown started, and with the lockdowns expected to continue through the winter holidays, we can expect more in the coming weeks.


Even though Anna, who goes by Banana Bruiser on social media, has just 1,600 followers on Instagram (at the time of this writing), her art has already gone viral, after being featured in a video by the BBC World Service.

Oh, and in case you were wondering about all those wasted bananas, Anna assures us that she eats every one of her “canvases” after taking photos of her artworks, so there is no food waste to talk about.

If you love banana art, you’re going to “looove” the world’s most expensive banana artwork!
