Ed Templeton is a professional skateboarder and artist.

He began by painting the graphics for his skateboard company, TV and later for Toy Machine. In 2000, Ed's book of photography Teenage Smokers placed first in the Search For Art competition in Italy, winning $50,000. In the fall of 2001, Ed's artwork was featured in Juxtapoz magazine and in the 2002 produced an art exhibition, The Essentiel Disturbance, in the Palais de Tokyo (Paris) with the catalogue, The Golden Age of Neglet, published by Drago.

Ed Templeton is a featured artist of "Beautiful Losers", a touring art exhibit, collected art book and feature documentary film, which includes the work of various contemporary artists. A lot of the art included in Beautiful Losers provides skateboarding and other urban themes. Templeton and some members of the Toy Machine team skated on ramps (and even a car) setup at the base of the Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center in the summer of 2003 for the temporary showcase of Beautiful Losers.

In 2008, after eleven years of selection and research, Ed Templeton has published Deformer the summary of his personality as an artist in which he speaks of his human and aesthetic growth in the "incubator of suburban outskirts", Orange County, California.

He is also a co-editor of the arts magazine, ANP Quarterly, started in 2005.
