Skateboard Sculptures

Skateboard Sculptures

Japanese artist Haroshi creates unique three-dimensional sculptures out of recycled skateboard decks.

Layers of stacked wooden decks are transformed into sharks, body parts, fire hydrants, toys, fictional characters, and shoes.

    The horse with wheels would be awesome for a kids toy

  2. bananaman

    Wow, this is so creative! Also a better use for skateboard decks instead of just throwing them away.

  3. Lilia Smiles

    The colors and the jagged edge reminds us that they were once skateboard decks! Absolutely love it!

    seems like a good mix of wood craft meets the CNC.

    Not a huge fan of the layered plywood look. The tennis shoes were nice. Some of the others that didn’t appear as layered lamination were also interesting.

  11. niss

    beautiful! :)

  12. Elin

    I’m in love with the horse on wheels :)

  13. Ninja Egg :D

    Love the hands

  14. Joe

    So sad. Think of all the enjoyment kids could get out of all those skateboards. Those “recycled” decks look just fine! What a waste..

    I love the shoes! especially how the toe curves up using the actual curve of a deck :)

  17. Mackie

    I love how perfect Rody(the horse on wheels) looks. my little brother has one. its a bouncy inflatable ride on toy. absolutely wonderful. i love them all.

  18. Bill Varner

  24. Alyssa

  25. Movi

    I seriously think those tennis shoes are photoshoped.

  26. Maya

    WOW! That’s so cool!

  27. Stephen

    I am a first year architecture student and i cant get over how cool this is. should make an architectural scale. i think those would be extremely popular with architecture students. would be really cool if you could incorporate a color scheme into the design based on the 12 different scales

  28. tricoad

    He should tell people that all of the decks were used by tony hawk and sell them to stupid american people for large sums of money

  29. Dany Jones

    Delightful! Fine craftsmanship. Clever and colorful. All around appeal, like a bowl of candy.

  30. Isaac

    pure creative genius! Master Haroshi art is light years ahead!

  31. Rania

    So cool… How did he do that, I can barely cut my nails with my hands… He is a genius, and the idea is so creative, the fact that he used skateboards is ordinary but the 3D idea is incredible !!! great job

  32. daniels

    Where did he get so many skateboard decks!?

    And tricoad, eat my fat American butt.

  33. Robert Lowdon

    The shoes and the legs are absolutely awesome.
