Haroshi – “Pain” @ StolenSpace via arrestedmotion.comvia: http://www.freshnessmag.com/2012/06/19/haroshi-studio-visit-by-nathan-perkel/

The 36-year-old Tokyo resident, self-taught sculpture artist Haroshi, combining his love for art and skateboarding, uses the discarded leftovers of broken skateboards to create striking wooden creations.  

His creations are born through styles such as wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels; where each element, either cut out in different shapes or kept in their original form, are connected in different styles, and shaven into the form of the final art piece.

The artist and painter Eduardo Rodriguez Calzado describes himself as being obsessed with detail, “expressing emotions through the fragmentation of color”. While the human form or elements of human consciousness are often represented in his pieces, he also enjoys starting with more abstract gestures and colors, and letting the narrative unfold organically.

These images were created by the award-winning German microscopy team Eye of Science, comprising photographer Oliver Meckes and biologist Nicole Ottawa.
