Haroshi x Virtual Reality @ Jonathan Levine Gallery as presented by: Off To See The Elephant

For those who arenít familiar with Haroshi, allow us to introduce him to you. Haroshi is a self taught Japanese artist, based out of Tokyo. Being an avid skateboarder from his early teens, he took his passion to the arts. His sculptures are made completely from recycled skateboards. The majority of his sculptures are created by using a mosaic method by stacking many layers of skate decks. It is quite impressive, because you have to use just the right shaped deck to have them fit properly on one another. Haroshi knows his skateboards inside and out, and is able to spot out exactly what ones will work out of thousands! The other unique thing about what Haroshi does is that it is similar to the way traditional wooden Japanese Great Buddhas are built, using a wooden mosaic.
