Part of the new cover:versions collection, this is graffiti artist Temper's take on a Led Zeppelin album cover.
“Album sleeves were like an art gallery to me as a child, by looking at a cover I could escape into a new place or environment; it provided me with a playground for my creativity.” - Temper.
In the brand new collection, world-renowned graffiti and conceptual artist, Temper, offers his own unique take on classic music album covers. Combining nostalgia with contemporary themes, these pieces are not to be missed.
This piece is based on Led Zeppelin's 1975 album, Physical Gravity.
Fine Art Publisher Washington Green Fine Art has worked closely with the artist to produce this bespoke vinyl record frame, designed especially for the cover:versions canvas editions by Temper. Producing the vinyl frame the right way is a time-consuming and labour-intensive undertaking — it requires the use of only premium materials, and relies on the skill and focus of talented artisans. The choice of manufacturing method and finest materials were critical to give an exact replica of the artist’s original in detail, colour and finish. Washington Green spent the best part of a year in development to ensure this level of quality, experimenting with several different processes and materials before settling on the those that provide the product you see today. Such is the attention to detail, it is possible to see not only the grooves in the records but the surface scratches on the records present on the original. Take a look at the framing process infographic.
