Ed TEMPLETON

Ed TEMPLETON’s cult-status photography series Wires Crossed is a captivating chronicle of the skate subculture, captured between 1995 and 2012. Now, it is reimagined as a limited collection of skate art editions in the artist’s first collaboration with THE SKATEROOM.

This conceptual triptych is visually unique within the collection, mixing together photography with painted elements in a collage-like format. There is a striking contrast between the black-and-white image and the colorful brush strokes, creating an ethereal aesthetic which seems to perfectly depict the visuals within Ed TEMPLETON’s creative mind. Each edition is signed by Ed Templeton.

Buying guide

We make a commitment to the social projects we fund: at least 10% of our revenue goes directly to them. Working with our partners, we help empower at-risk youth, build new skateparks and develop education facilities & resource programs. Since 2014, we have generated over $1,500,000 to support social projects around the world.

In 2019, we became a Certified B Corporation. THE SKATEROOM is also CO2 neutral, chooses to source its skateboard wood from certified sustainable forests, and uses water-based ink for its prints.

These editions of artwork are intended for decorative purposes. While you could definitely skate on them if you wanted to, we provide you with one wall mount per deck to hang them on your wall, just like a painting.

We provide you with everything you need to hang your boards up. With your edition purchase you will receive the EasyFix wall mounts. It’s really easy to set up and you can find all the instructions right here. You can always upgrade to the premium SnapDisplay wall mounts.

Our team is also always ready to help if you have any additional questions.

CoA is short for certificate of authenticity. CoA’s are either signed by the artist or THE SKATEROOM in order to validate the editions. It is specificied on each product page if a CoA is provided with the edition.

Direct exposure to sunlight might result in discoloration and damage to your editions. To avoid this, we strongly suggest hanging your art-decks away from direct natural light.

You have up to 14 days after receiving your order to request a return. The 14-day return policy is applicable on all products except limited hand-signed editions. We will provide you with a return label to send us back the purchased edition in the same condition as when received, with the original packaging and documentation.
