New Works by Cult Japanese Skater Artist

Jeffrey Deitch
POV
"Dive In To The Pit" is an exhibition of new works by the still-underground skater artist, Haroshi, whose work is often provocative and humorous in equal measure. His “god-like” Guzo sculptures are playful and reverential and are complemented by the Mosh Pit series, a collection of paintings made from repurposed skateboard decks, in a wild, Neo-Expressionist sort of style.

ABOUT
Through their daily practice, skaters develop the unique ability to revisit the spaces we inhabit and redefine everyday objects. Overlooked environments— such as an empty swimming pool, sidewalk curb, or the handrail of a staircase—inspire skaters to invent new tricks and shape their style. Fully immersed in a culture that celebrates new ways of reinventing forgotten or discarded objects, Haroshi layers and carves used skateboard decks from his community to create his artistic world. Comprised of entirely new works, DIVE IN TO THE PIT at Jeffrey Deitch invites the viewer into the world of the skater and underground artist Haroshi. The exhibition title evokes the energy felt from diving into a mosh pit at a punk show and riding over the waves. DIVE IN TO THE PIT invites the viewer to stand at the edge and drop into the “mosh pit of the skateboarding world.” - Jeffrey Deitch
