Recycled Skateboard Deck Sculptures

Japanese artist Haroshi turns old skateboards into impressive sculptures. His skill is epic, and yet, he’s had no formal art training. His education comes from skating.

His creations are born through styles such as wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels; where each element, either cut out in different shapes or kept in their original form, are connected in different styles, and shaven into the form of the final art piece. Haroshi became infatuated with skateboarding in his early teens, and is still a passionate skater at present.

The new set features astounding and colorful carvings of a fire hydrant, a full length arm, an enormous skateboard wheel, a playable guitar, and an unfinished dog head.
