This work is in excellent condition. The artist used acrylic paint, enamel and powdered graphit. It comes with documents confirming provenance and authenticity. 

Dan Shaw-Town’s work possesses a polished quality that belies his intricate and
layered use of materials and the utilitarian nature of his installation process.
Using traditional processes of mark-making with graphite on paper, he folds, crumples,
flattens and reworks drawings so that they become simultaneously polished and worn to
unveil their hidden potential.
The precision with which works are formed becomes apparent only on close contact: every
stroke and mark placed carefully. Drawings are erased, sanded and painted to achieve a
wide array of surfaces and textures, many of which seem at first to sit uncomfortably on
the paper.
Many works blur the distinctions between drawing and sculpture, even on occasion
becoming folded objects placed on the floor hiding much of their heavily worked surface
on their interior.
