Japanese wood sculptor Haroshi is the creator of amazingly beautiful wooden sculptures out of old, crashed and broken skateboard decks. His multicolored and meticulously sculpted art pieces simply astound with lifelike affinity, so you could mistake them for being real! In his works he stacks many layers with all piece elements being connected either in their original form or in shapes to form wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels. After that they’re cut down to size, shaven to get rid of the debris, and afterwards coated with a final glossy finish. And with a long-term passion for skateboarding, Haroshi even puts a broken metal skateboard piece in the center of each sculpture to give soul to the statue.
