About @isteef

Instagram is going bananas for Stephan Brusche’s art. His work was declared by Time as “the visual movement we’ve all been waiting for,” building an entire career around his newfound “banana art emporium.” From a random lightbulb moment in 2011 about “how pleasant a banana peel is to draw on,” Stephan went full-throttle all in, sculpting and adorning his new medium of choice. Now with over 100K followers and global media acclaim, Stephan has traded his day job for his fruitful enterprise, embarking on a labor of love both rich in passion and potassium.
