Born of a deep-seating admiration for Pink Floyd – in accordance with all the design references going on hereabouts – edgy and in-demand reformed graffiti-cum-contemporary conceptual artist, Temper has treated us to a glorious illustrative concoction in this, his brand new Spring 2014 release.
Entitled, ‘Pink Gum’ those beady-eyed amongst you will already have arrived at the conclusion that it’s based on Floyd’s ‘Umma Gumma’ LP, perhaps before you’ve even noticed the visual clues and pictorial hints, as aforementioned.
Like for example the pound sign hanging around the B-Boy’s neck (think, Floyd’s ‘Money’ track), and the carton of juice in his hand (referencing, ‘Apples and Oranges’). Or maybe the B-Boy smoking a cigar (‘Have a Cigar’) is far from accidental? Who knows, just our initial thoughts. Either way this sublime slice of Temper artwork is yours to own, in this giclee on paper, hand-signed format; providing you get on it like Rob Bonnet and secure your limited edition print before they’re all snaffled up by fellow Temper groupies.
