Smashing Bananas! Artist in Seine, FinnBadger and Katerina Nikoltsou

Directly from the banana headquarter in Paris: The Banana-hammer. Paint a banana on a old book cover and smash it with a hammer is so very Dada. And so funny. Thank you, Dean!

A clever banana cut-out and a very nice stamp (FAUXHIO). Thank you, FinnBadger!

Some sweet bananas and stamping from Kat. Thank you Katerina!

Dean, it's actually called "smash painting". They say it releases lots of energy. You may not have any brushes to clean, but everything else around you needs some good cleaning. ;)

Great to see the original hammered banana from Dean. And I continue to be impressed by how well my bananas traveled to their destinations.

Happy it arrived.  Sadly I didn't do a before and after photo.  I only had the idea after doing yours which ended up everywhere in the kitchen.  I had a lighter hand with the others.  You live and you learn!

Thank for the blog.Actually it did cross my mind of doing a whole large painting this way.  Imagine, no paint brushes to clean up after.
