These pop-culture sculptures look great, even more amazing is that they are made out of the wood of trashed skateboards. Created by Japanese skateboarder and self-taught sculptor Haroshi, the unique appearance of his sculptures is due to the composition of the skateboards he uses. The sculptures are created from multiple layers of processed wood, sometimes the layers are dyed as well, which gives that distinctive striped appearance. The skateboards are then glued together and carved into sculptures.

As an avid skateboarder, Haroshi often recycles his own skateboards into his artwork. 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.”
