Valeriano Fatica describes himself as “painter, sculptor, performer, carver of fruits and vegetables.”
He does all sorts artistically, and has numerous videos on his YouTube channel which display his talents wielding carving tools.
Sometimes he does the art with potatoes, sometimes he does the carving with melons. But he always does the carving with an enormous amount of patience. We mean, an absolutely astonishing amount. The planning alone which goes into something like this must be incredible. Getting hold of exactly the right shaped melon must be a nightmare.
The video shows the detail of the carving, shot with head mounted GoPro camera, or something similar, which captures every detail of the process from Valeriano’s work.
