The Surreal Banana People of Lin Shih-Yung

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a banana? Every night, you plant yourself in the ground. Maybe pour a little water on for growth. How difficult is it these days to raise a young banana? Lin Shih-Yung answers these questions and more you never knew you had with her surreal paintings. Take a look.
