Haroshi – Artist Profile

Haroshi Artist Profile

Haroshi Artwork CalStreets Concrete WveHaroshi is a self-taught Japanese artist, born in 1978, currently based in Tokyo. He creates full-scale, three-dimensional wooden sculptures with discarded and recycled skateboard decks.

A passionate skater since his early teens, Haroshi possesses a thorough knowledge of the anatomy of a skateboard and all of its parts including the deck, trucks and wheels. He often scavenges, collecting broken skateboards to recycle the parts and use in his work. With no formal art training, Haroshi has adapted the determined perseverance and DIY ethos of skate culture into creating works of art. Haroshi’s relationship with his artwork is the same as with his skateboards – they are his life, his vehicle for communication and expression.

He has been commissioned to create the trophy for Battle at the Berrics, which is the most-watched event on the most-watched site in skateboarding for the last three years. He opened his third solo exhibition, “Still Pushing Despite the Odds,” at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in February 2015 in New York.
