Grayson Perry Grayson Perry

English artist Grayson Perry is known for his ceramic vases, tapestries and cross-dressing. His work tackles subjects that are universally human: identity, gender, social status, sexuality, religion as well as observations of the contemporary arts scene.     Perry's vases have classical forms and are decorated in bright colours, depicting subjects at odds with their attractive appearance. There is a strong autobiographical element in his work, in which images of Perry as "Claire", his female alter-ego, and "Alan Measles", his childhood teddy bear, often appear.   Winner of the 2003 Turner Prize, Perry was elected a Royal Academician in 2012 and his work is held in museum collections worldwide, including The British Museum, London; Tate Collection, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York and Stedelijk Museum; Amsterdam among many others.
