It’s not very often that graffiti artist’s work are recognised in the grander scheme of contemporary art society things, however one hugely popular practitioner who successfully bucked that trend was Temper back in 2001, who was invited to stage a one-man show at his native Birmingham’s Museum and Art Gallery. Since then, the now hugely successful contemporary conceptual artist has gone on to be introduced as one of the leading exponents of his genre, and continues to provoke debate through his graphically enveloping works of universal repute.
Like this for example, his brand new Spring 2014 release, entitled, ‘Dave’s Star Quest’. For those who never received the memo, it’s clever wordplay which should make you instantly think of ‘Ziggy Stardust’ by David Bowie. If it doesn’t, you haven’t lived. Channelling the creation of one of the Thin White Duke’s notoriously odd alter egos, acclaimed and massively collected contemporary graffiti artist, Temper’s brand new Spring 2014 reveal is every inch a fitting, modern day homage to a seminal album cover, in more ways than meets the eye. and is currently available to order in its limited edition, giclee on paper format in store.
