As part of the re-opening of it’s flagship Fairfax store, HUF has collaborated with Japanese artist Haroshi—known for his crazy, layered sculptures created from reclaimed skate decks—on the Middle Finger vinyl figure. A smaller version of the large sculpture that greets guests to the store, the unpainted debut edition is cast in slime green vinyl and is limited to 50 pieces. It’s available exclusively at the HUF Fairfax store.
While not specifically marketed as sofubi, we’re pretty sure it is, since as the video below shows, it was slush cast in the traditional method and was almost certainly done in Japan. The video is hands-down the most stylish slush casting video we’ve seen so far—worth a view.
