Haroshi Turns Old Skateboards Into Astounding Sculptures

Japanese artist and skateboarder Haroshi recycles old skateboards to create beautiful 3D wooden mosaics in the style of spiritual Buddha statues. The passionate skater wonderfully channels the spirit and aesthetic of Japanese art in these brilliant creations, giving new meaning to the old saying one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. It surely helps that he has an affinity for, not only skating, but collecting old boards. His infatuation with skating has led him to become an expert in skateboard anatomy, which undoubtedly helps in his artistic endeavors. Check out these awesome pieces and make sure to check out his website and Facebook to find out where and when he’ll be having exhibitions!
