BBC NEWS : Anna Chojnicka: Bruising bananas to create elaborate works of art

Here is this week's selection of world news from the BBC.

Enjoy watching and reading !

Artist Anna Chojnicka has shied away from traditional canvas in favour of... bananas. The north London artist bruises the skin to create elaborate drawings that she shares daily on her social media.

Her artwork ranges from landscapes and portraits to social justice messages and even the TV cartoon character Homer Simpson.

But the bananas she uses don’t go to waste. After she has documented her pieces, she then eats the banana to complete the creative process.
