    The work, The Meeting Spot, is an example of his latest series of work, as he works over LP sleeves which inspired him as a child with oil and acrylic. Temper states how ‘Album covers were like an art gallery to me as a child. They had a magic about them.’ In The Meeting Spot Temper works over the cover of The Melting Pot – The Crainberries. The Meeting Spot is part of a second series following his incredibly successful twelve piece series, using photo-realistic effects.

    Temper, aka Arron Bird, is known for his graffiti work and his acrylic paintings which re-imagine classic rock and pop album sleeves. Temper first began his work in graffiti in 1981 at the age of 11, when he met the graffiti artist Goldie in the local scene in Wolverhampton. During the 90s, Goldie and Temper were some of the first graffiti artists to be paid for their work and in 1995 Temper created his first canvas series – beginning his transition from concrete to canvas.


    Temper was commissioned in 2001 by Coca-Cola to create the images for their limited edition of sprite can. Additionally, Temper has had a solo exhibition at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery where he was the first graffiti artist to ever have a solo show in a major public gallery space. The solo exhibition broke a record for attracting 38,000 visitors within the exhibition’s four week duration. Temper has also painted a wall for Saatchi at their offices in London and has also produced work for Chelsea Football Club. Furthermore, in 2007 Temper became the first graffiti artist to be invited to produce a major piece of public art , called The Cube.
