He Advanced by Temper

The No Boundaries collection reflects Temper’s yearning for exploration and his new found direction as he navigates the challenges of life.

‘He Advanced’ was the first of the No Boundaries sketches series.  The play on words for the title He Advanced has the words HEAD ADVANCED VANCE, explained – Advancement of the head, and Vance seamounts are a series of underwater volcanoes, giving reference to the brain ready to erupt by the artist. There is a couple kissing in the trees to give reference to temptation and the main character looking in the opposite direction and focussed on more mature thoughts, a tree stump suggests that a maturity in the artist was short lived and cut down, however the tree rings are a reminder of experience and years of knowledge. There is also to fresh tree growths to the right of the character in amongst the fungi, letting us know that new things are coming out of the mouldy setting and this time the figure is without device or equipment to suggest instinct is the tool for the start of this journey

At a pivotal point in his exciting and groundbreaking career, the No Boundaries collection is an opportunity to buy into the artist’s journey and resurrection from the struggles of his past.

Temper original ink drawing sketch

‘No Boundaries’ is a mini collection that features the DUDE-iLLiN signature characters by the artist Temper.
DUDE-iLLiN said quickly sounds the same as doodling, which is exactly why they are named this way by the artist.
The dudes have been evolving for 33 years starting out in the rawest form of graffiti by Temper ,they have been seen in several forms, from window displays for global fashion outlets to the sell out collection ‘Cover:versions’.
No Boundaries is a collection of private sketches from the artist now made available through Hepplestone’s.  The pioneer in the field of graffiti art,Temper was not only the first the artist to sit a GCSE exam in Art by doing graffiti in the this country in 1987, but has helped us all change our outlook about the graffiti artwork through many key milestone events.

Each Temper piece is signed by the artist, offered with a certificate of authenticity and professionally framed.
