Based largely on The Who’s, ‘Who’s Next’ LP, Temper’s brand new, ‘Who’s Up Next’ illustrative reveal is not as confusing as it may first read/sound. Indeed, it’s simplicity itself in as much as it’s the acclaimed contemporary graffiti artist’s graphic re-visiting of old musical and graphic ground for the a man whose work is very much in demand (we know; there we go again with the ‘who’s’). It’s like being in a Dr Seuss book, isn’t it??
We digress though, as ‘Who’s Up Next’ is all about artist of the moment, Temper, and his brand new Spring 2014 collection, entitled, ‘Cover:Versions’. Pictorially dedicated to observing, celebrating and paying ultimate homage to some of the last half of last century’s biggest selling recording artists (and most instantly recognisable covers), this mini-series is a tour de force for a man who’s conceptual art-manifesting star is very much in the ascendency these days. Available to order now, this giclee on paper version is hand-signed by Temper and comes as part of a limited edition run; so time is most definitely of the essence.
