Artist Haroshi saves skateboards from doom and helps them to be reborn into sculptures.

SKATEBOARD_CART

Old and broken skateboards most frequently end up on landfill or bonfires. Artist Haroshi saves skateboards from doom and helps them to be reborn into sculptures. Haroshi removes the hardware, the carefully cuts, stacks, saws, grinds, and sands the pieces into a variety of shapes and figures. He has created Teddy Bears, Nintendo’s Mario, large hands, laughing skulls, and many other impressive pieces. Haroshi lets the mulit-colored layers from the skateboards provide the color.

Haroshi hides a little magic in all of his pieces, too. Inside of every sculpture hides a tiny metallic piece from the skateboard’s hardware which he believes adds spirit and life to the piece. In many of his creations Haroshi uses the broken edges of the wood to add texture and drama. Next time a skateboard snaps under your feet, take a closer look and see what it can become. Via Indulgd.

Peter-Gentenaar-11

Limited by the uses of commercial paper Netherland-based artist Peter Gentenaar has created his very own paper. Using long-fiber paper pulp he is able to create incredible 2-dimensional art which has some of the most amazing organic forms. Similar to how a leaf dries and curls, so does Peter’s sculptures, creating unbelievable organic-looking sculptures. The end result, an incredible series of gracefully floating sculptures. You can see these installations on display above the main restaurant at Hotel Indigo St. Petersburg. Here are some beautiful pictures where you can judge for yourself.
