Not for the first time, West Midland’ conceptual artist and contemporary graffiti practitioner, Temper has illustratively plundered his signature B-Boy characters to aid and abet him in affording his audience a Temper-take on something compositional, yet on this particular occasion the familiar imagery has gone before. And that sense of Deja vous is care of Temper’s revisiting of one of popular music’s finest hours; and on this occasion graphically replicated on his brand new composition, entitled, ‘We Free’. The timeless album cover art from which Temper has borrowed is naturally, ‘Freewheelin’’, by the legendary singer/songwriter, Bob Dylan.
This forms a crucial part of Temper’s very latest collection of limited edition, framed giclee on canvas visual entities, all of which are fused together (having been previously inspired) by his love of some of music’s greatest album releases. From the Beastie Boys and The Beatles to Bob and Bowie, Temper’s charismatic, yet oh-so-contemporary-living B-Boys are etched within the very fabric of some classic album cover artworks, giving yet another generation a voice of protest, evolution and progress; essentially taking over from where the predecessor left off.
