With few exceptions, the life of a professional skateboarder, especially one as legendary and long-standing as Ed Templeton, mandates hours and hours—probably years of his life—in a car. Living behind the Orange curtain in Huntington Beach and spending years on tour with Toy Machine can only compound the time in the whip.
So, the head of the Transistor Sect used photos shot from a car as the theme of his latest art show, The Seconds Pass. Hear him explain how he got the name for the show from Mike Vallely, the story behind some of the pieces and more, just before the opening night. The exhibit runs until April 3rd at the Roberts & Tilton Gallery.
