What happens to old skateboard decks? Well most probably end up in the bin, and a lucky few may make it into storage in a dusty corner of the garage to be reminisced over when you are old and balding at best.  Now however, art collective Haroshi have launched a series of art pieces made using the interesting and unique layer patterns of old skateboard decks.

This is a new take on eco and recycled artwork, the recent Harvest project showcased a selection of the collective’s work from recent years, exemplifying philosophy to embrace sustainability through finding new applications for used possessions.

“There is no single USED skateboard that it is bend or scrunched in the same way. As if it is a personality, skateboard has it`s own character. What I am doing is to focusing on each personality and use it`s element to create my work. So I am trying to show the out shoot of the board beautifully as color of the skateboard looks beautiful when it`s pasted together.”
