News__ Haroshi’s Recycled Boards

| By

Just when you think your board is dead, it becomes a moose

Japanese artist, Haroshi doesn't let a good deck go to waste. Bringing life to destroyed skateboard decks, Haroshi's meticulously carved wooden sculptures include a wide range of mosaic creatures like an arm with its middle finger extended, a giant skateboard wheel, the face of a dog, a fire hydrant, an apple, a shark and a giant moose head. Since his teenage years, Haroshi has been inspired by skateboarding and is still an avid skater today. His website explains, “He often feels attached to trucks with the shaft visible, goes around picking up and collecting broken skateboard parts, and feels reluctant to throw away crashed skateboards.” Wow, this guy really takes his work home. Err…you know what we mean.

Haroshi's recycled skateboard deck works were recently on display as part of an exhibition at HUF's distribution center. In case you missed it (like us) see some of Haroshi’s recycled skateboard sculptures below.
