Grayson Perry is an English contemporary artist, writer and broadcaster. He was the winner of the Turner Prize in 2003 and is now one of the most well-known and popular artists of our time, famous for his ceramic vases, tapestries and cross-dressing, as well as his brilliant observations of the contemporary arts scene, and for dissecting British “prejudices, fashions and foibles”. He has made a number of documentary television programmes and has curated many exciting and challenging exhibitions. Grayson challenges stereotypes and makes us see our lives in new ways. He has published a number of books including an autobiography, Grayson Perry: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl, written a book on masculinity, The Descent of Man, written and illustrated a graphic novel, Cycle of Violence, and published his illustrated Sketchbooks. His book Playing to the Gallery is based on the BBC Reith Lectures which he delivered to high acclaim in 2013.
