Haroshi : Artist Profile

Sculptor and skater Haroshi gives Magic Lanterns an exclusive look inside his studio as he prepares his prototype for POW! WOW! Hawaii. Not much else to say other than to press play and enjoy this little artist profile. Haroshi talks about acquiring his space, materials, process and why he wants to skate again. The camera pans around his studio looking at his work, impressive collection of books/sources and even his battered collection of Nike Air Jordans. Click through to his site to see more examples of his sculptures here.

I've tacked on another short by Magic Lanterns after browsing the rest of their playlist, profiling hyper realist illustrator, Shohei Otomo. I actually felt as though I'd seen it before and after a little digging realised it was a Backwoods Gallery release from over a year ago. Still relevant now and and an interesting look into the artist's use of his city, Tokyo, as a muse of sorts. Enjoy the clips and thanks for reading.
