Haroshi:: Skateboard art

Haroshi, Japanese wood sculptor, specializes in creating three-dimensional art pieces from used and broken skateboard decks. The fact of skate decks are already processed products, due to they’re shapes, signature models and factories, led Haroshi to be able to differentiate from thousands of used deck stocks in order to find which deck fits with which when stacked. After the decks are chosen and stacked, they are cut, shaven, and polished with his favorite tools. By coincidence, this creative style of his is similar to the way traditional wooden Japanese Great Buddhas are built. Find out more about this great sculptor by clicking here.

Haroshi, um escultor de madeira japonês, especializou-se na criação de peças tri-dimensionais a partir de tábuas de skate usadas e partidas. O facto de as tábuas de skate serem produtos já processados, por causa dos diferentes shapes, modelos de assinatura e diferentes fabricantes, levou a que Haroshi se torna-se capaz de diferenciar entre milhares de tábuas usadas de forma a perceber quais as tábuas que poderiam encaixar umas com as outras quando empilhadas. Depois de escolhidas as tábuas e empilhadas, elas são cortadas, raspadas e polidas com as suas ferramentas favoritas. Por coincidência, este seu estilo criativo é similar à tradicional forma com que os Grandes Budas de madeira Japoneses são construídos. Descobre mais acerca deste grande escultor ao clicar aqui.
