Haroshi  

Haroshi was born in 1978 in Tokyo, Japan, where he is currently based. As a passionate skater from his early years to present, Haroshi possesses a thorough knowledge of the anatomy of a skateboard and all of its parts, including the decks, trucks and wheels. With no formal art training, he adapted the determined perseverance, freedom of expression and DIY ethos of skate culture, into creating works of art. In 2011, commissioned by NIKE CEO Mark Parker, Haroshi re-created a pair of SB Dunk sneakers make from decks used by several NIKE pro-skaters – the work was featured in his debut solo exhibition in the United States, Future Primitive
