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 . . .

We catch up with one of our favorite artists, Gothenburg, Sweden based fine artist, illustrator, and mural artist, Ekta. To us, a great use of color and simplicity is a key, and Ekta has that command. Interview after the jump . . .

This is a gem. This "Leather Skateboard" was designed by Greece Is for Lovers, who have been "passionetely designing, producing and promoting their products, limited editions and one-offs as well as exhibiting throughout the world, since 2006." This is like leather skateboard sandals. More views after the jump . . .

We were thinking when first hearing of Ed Templeton's new exhibition at the Ernst Muzeum in Budapest, Hungary, that Ed had really captured the European audience over the past 5 or so years. And then we read the press release from the Ernst, stating Ed was "most interesting artist to surprise Europe in recent years." More after the jump . . .

Ari Marcopoulos will be showing in Paris at Galerie Frank Elbaz opening tomorrow night, January 8th, with a show titled This Week. The concept of the show seems simple enough: candid shots, snap shots, and more day-in-the-life type photography. And because it is Ari Marcopoulos, the photos tend to be interesting regardless of intent or style. Images after the jump . . .

Oh, you are actually supposed to skate on the skateboard, gotcha. We know skateboard decks as art has been around awhile, but for the most part, you can actually put some trucks and wheels on the board and actually skate. Charles Krafft has an extra obstacle for you in the skateboard as art game. Information after the jump . . .

Our friends and family at SLAP Magazine have been speaking of Jason Adams' work for quite some time, and we learned a bit more about Adams this past Fall at his group show at 111 Minna Gallery. The known skater and artist just had a video posted with him as the subject, a 7-minute short by Kyle Camarillo. Video after the jump . . .

We preface this post with 1) we don't know anything about longboarding, and 2) we always appreciate a well-done web video, especially from Argentina. Hypebeast posted this video today called "Slowboarding," created by Motion Lights. As Motion Lights says, "This audiovisual explore longboarding as sport, from the slow motion perspective..."
