Hong-Kong based artist Marta Grossi uses an unlikely canvas for her art; she creates bizarre food graffiti using only banana peels. Grossi enjoys the temporary nature of this medium, explaining, "I have my banana for breakfast the day after. This is a temporary space and love to prove that inspiration is everywhere." Grossi notes that each banana provides a simple, yet inimitable surface for her to work her magic.

Grossi leaves her mark on the peels through a variety of different methods, from black marker to paint and glitter. Each finished banana is snapped atop of a colorful background via Grossi's iPhone.

Grossi has created a fun and inventive new series that proves that inspiration can be found in the unlikeliest of places, and that anything can be transformed into art.
