Haroshi’s Skateboard Art

Haroshi is a Japanese sculptor, woodworker,  and skateboarder from Tokyo, Japan. He is known for creating large sculptures made out of used skateboard decks. He makes each sculpture by carefully selecting and stacking the skateboards, then he hand carves, paints, and polishes them into a veneer finish. He also sculptures teddy bears, cartoon characters, sneakers, and fire hydrants. During the construction of each sculpture, Haroshi puts a broken skateboard piece into the core of the piece or gives each piece a “soul”. This practice was inspired by Unkei who was a  12th-century Buddhist sculptor. Unkei would place a crystal ball inside each of his Buddha sculptures.
