Haroshi recycled skateboards art

Post by saL » Fri Jul 06, 2012 9:40 am

thought I should introduce Japanese sculptor, Haroshi, to anyone that hasn't seen his work yet.. his piece are created from used skateboard decks, that still hold sentimental meanings to their owner, but are otherwise no longer useable.. by turning them into art piece he gives them a whole new dimension and way of appreciation.. here are some of his works:

Haroshi is amazing, been a fan for a while! but that's obvious because I like most things that work with old decks.

The WIP video is cool, nice to see how he's working on the shape.
