We had the pleasure of attending Haroshi’s second solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The Tokio-based Japanese artist titled his new series of sculptures Virtual Reality, making reference to the classic 1993 skate video from Plan B, example of one of the most experimental and progressive eras in skateboarding.

As you may have already known, Haroshi has made an impression on the art world in recent years for his recycled skateboard sculptures. The Japanese artist is set to open a new solo show, Virtual Reality, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC on Saturday, January 12. The repetition of skating, the craft of perfecting the right trick, comes out in the methodical arrangement of the plywood decks into recognizable characters and shapes.

We in San Francisco miss our friends at HUF, but we are happy to see them in Los Angeles doing well and hosting a new body of work from Haroshi. As you may know, Haroshi creates sculptures from recycled skate decks. He exhibited new sculptures at HUF's headquarters in Los Angeles this past weekend.

Haroshi creates art by recycling old used skateboards and turning them into various three-dimensional pieces and sculptures. The results are both resourceful and astounding, some of the most original conceptual art we have been introduced to in the past few months. Nice Thrasher reference, too. More after the jump . . .
