I have been curious about these artworks ever since I caught an article about it in a magazine. Not your ordinary passion for skateboards, his passion is for broken skateboards. Rather than throwing it away, he makes an art out of it. What a great way to commemorate a good ‘ol skateboard right?
He is a Japanese wood sculptor named Haroshi. Himself a skateboard enthusiast, he creates colorful mementos out the once fast and furious skateboards. How? He stacks them up, layers upon layers of of skateboard wood and then he cuts them according to the design and then finishes them up with gloss. Sometimes, he even includes the metal parts and rollers to his creations too! Cool!
