Japanese artist Haroshi latest series of sculptures, carved from blocks made of old skateboard decks, plays on the toy-obsessed collector culture of Japan. Click here for previous posts of Haroshi’s work. See more images from “Guzo” below or on display at Nanzuka Gallery in Tokyo from April 22 – June 10.
When I was out in Tokyo last year for Pow! Wow! my friends and I went out to visit Japanese artist Haroshi at his studio (his photo of us) and he gifted me this bullet made out of skateboards. I chose from a whole bunch and he could immediately tell what decks he’d used to make it based on the colours. I believe this one was made out of old Enjo boards. Anyways he’s one of my favourite artists and Alexander Mitchell just released a nice video portrait of him working in his studio which you can watch on Booooooom TV.
