A few days ago, I wrote about the talented Japanese artist Haroshi and his amazing wood art using recycled skateboard decks. I recently found out that he has teamed up with California based clothing line HUF and DLX (Deluxe), a distribution label who currently handles five popular skate brands: Spitfire Wheels, Thunder Trucks, Anti-hero, Real Skateboards, and Krooked. Haroshi’s new works were exhibited at HUF’s headquarters in Los Angeles. HUF also released a number of clothing products like shirts, hoodies, and shoes that also feature Haroshi’s work.

According to HUF: “In honor of this collaboration, HUF and DLX sent Haroshi hundreds of used skateboard decks skated by specific DLX team riders. Drawing upon his philosophy that there is a significant relationship between the skateboarder and his skateboard, Haroshi has transformed the very decks skated by these DLX team riders into one-of-a-kind sculptures representative of the skaters themselves.”
