As an avid skateboarder, Haroshi often recycles his skateboards into his works.
Japanese skateboarder and self-taught sculptor Haroshi creatively combined his two passions, creating bright and stylish pop culture images from the wood of broken skateboards.
The unique appearance of his sculptures is due to the structure of the skateboards that he uses, because they are created from several layers of treated wood. These layers are sometimes colored, which gives his sculptures a peculiar striped appearance. Skateboards are glued together and cut into various pop art shapes, such as hearts, skulls and even sneakers.
