Yellow Leather by Naufus Ramirez Figueroa

A meditation on the banana by Guatemalan interdisciplinary artist Naufus Ramirez Figueroa. I like his artist statement:

Though my creative process is committed to experimentation and research, and my subject matter often deals with things such as the Guatemalan Civil War, the results are often absurd and humorous. I have found that refugees and survivors of war are often that way; nothing in life is ever so dire as to be unworthy of a joke or two.
