With a mutual love for skateboarding, California born photographer, Nathan Perkel, took a trip to the Far East to capture the studio of famed Japanese sculptor and artist HAROSHI. There is no doubt that HAROSHI is coming up the ranks in the art scene as an up-and-coming artist from Japan, and some may remember the feet sculpture with transparent skate shoes he created for the Jonathan LeVine Gallery at Art Basel 2012. It is a rare sight to see the studios of artists, and we are treated by the high quality images taken by Perkel. As one would expect, the studio is packed with used skateboards, off cut scraps, and lots of dust from all the woodwork. Scroll down and take a visual journey through the studio below.
