Ed Templeton OG TV Skateboard Deck Artwork

This is the original painting Ed Templeton made for one of Mike Valley's deck graphics when he rode for TV Skateboards. Here is what the seller had to say about it.
"Up for auction is an original Ed Templeton painting signed and dated 1992. It measures 15" x 40". I don't know what type of paint was used. It was painted on chip board. The image was used as a skateboard graphic for Ed's first company called "television". When I was given this painting in the late 90's I was told that it had to be cut in half in order to be scanned properly. Sounds totally nuts to me but it definitely has been cut in half. Perfectly too. See photos. When framed it is not very noticeable that it is 2 pieces. It could be fixed professionally so that it's perfect and seamless. There is some puckering where it got moist at some point in storage and warped the chip board slightly."
Currently selling for $100 with 8 days left here.
