Having previously enjoyed commissions from Coca-Cola, Nike and Saatchi & Saatchi and a solo show at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, 2014's cover:versions saw a change in pace for Temper. He swapped his spray can for a paintbrush, oils and acrylic to recreate twelve iconic album covers using a combination of photo-realistic effects and his signature graffiti B-boys.
The new 2015 addition to the cover:versions portfolio, entitled ‘Temper’s Cover Versions Graffiti Gang’ is inspired by the cover art for The Beatles' classic 1967 album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. However, instead of the celebrities depicted in the original cover, this piece features an array of previous cover:versions characters in the background, along with new characters created to represent different musical genres, as a nod to the impact music and cover art has had on Temper as an artist and to previous titles in the cover:versions portfolio.
