Eco-conscious artists are always on the look out for new materials to upcycle. Here at Complex we’ve featured folks breathing new life into cassette tapes, books and old computer parts. The guys and gals responsible for the art in today’s slideshow take the broken skateboards most riders chuck and transform them into sculptures, mosaics and in one instance, lamps. Since nearly all of the artists are skaters themselves, their relationship with the medium is uniquely intimate and their creations are intensely personal.
