This past weekend, Japanese artist Haroshi debuted a new body of works at New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Entitled Virtual Reality, this exhibition is the second in the Big Apple by the sculptor known for utilizing used skate decks as his source material. On display this time were full-scale sculptural creations such as kicks by Airwalk, bullets, a skull, and even an incredible life size skater pulling off a handplant. Included in the showing was an installation of hand carved skate decks made of recycled skateboards (seen above).
It’s quite amazing to see Haroshi’s creativity when it comes to the diverse subject matter he’s worked on, but more inspiring to see his dedication to skating through his previous cohesive shows in both NYC & LA (covered here & here). This great exhibition will be up until Feb 9th, so stop by and check it out if you’re fortunate enough to be in town. Check out a detailed look below.
