"I despise the kind of book that tells you … how to make yourself happy! The first duty of philosophy is making you understand what deep shit you are in."
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.
"Find your voice, shout it from the rooftops, and keep doing it until the people that are looking for you find you."
"Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible."
"When trouble strikes, head to the library. You will either be able to solve the problem, or simply have something to read as the world crashes down around you."
"Wilderness. The word itself is music."
