Temper pays homage to The Beastie Boys' 1989 album, Paul's Boutique, with his twist on the classic album cover.
UK-based graffiti artist Temper has experienced phenomenal success over the past three decades, having completed commissions for sports giant Nike and Coca Cola's Sprite brand.
Now, Temper is back with the brand new collection cover:versions, which offers an original perspective on classic album covers.
Scrawls New Peek takes the classic Paul's Boutique cover art, and adds Temper's own unique twist.
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.
