The unique appearance of his modern sculptures is all thanks to the composition of the skateboards he uses, which are created from multiple layers of processed wood. These layers are sometimes dyed as well, which gives his sculpture art their distinctive striped appearance. The skateboards are then glued together and carved into various pop-art forms like hearts, skulls, and even sneakers. sculptures Haroshi Creates Sculptures Out Of Skateboard Deck haroshi i lobo you 8

As an enthusiastic skateboarder, Haroshi often recycles his own skateboards into his contemporary sculptures. As he writes on his site, “To Haroshi, his art pieces are equal to his skateboards, and that means they are his life itself. They’re his communication tool with both himself and the outside world.”
