The 36-year-old Tokyo resident, self-taught sculpture artist Haroshi, combining his love for art and skateboarding, uses the discarded leftovers of broken skateboards to create striking wooden creations.

The woodblock will be used to make limited edition color prints, available for pre-order here.
