Fancy a sculptural horse made out of broken skateboards?

Tokyo-based Japanese artist Haroshi creates three-dimensional wooden sculptures with recycled skateboards as his primary medium, with this particular series depicting horses.

Incorporating every part of the board, this self-taught artist uses his vast knowledge of the extreme sport to construct vibrantly coloured and playful works. Speaking of the unusual material, he states:

“Throughout their lifespan together the skater and his board get battered, but even so they get up again to face the obstacles in their path.”
