Product story

Grayson Perry is renowned for his ceramic vases decorated with shocking and unconventional imagery. He rose to fame in 2003 when he won the prestigious Turner Prize. Grayson Perry is one of a generation of British artists to have emerged in the international stage since the early 1990s. His exquisite yet hard hitting work references his own upbringing and his life as a transvestite, whilst also engaging broader issues from war, religion, politics and sex. This first major monograph of Grayson Perry is complemented by a series of intimate, insightful commentaries on individual pieces by the artist himself. Over 150 pieces are illustrated here, as well as a rich selection of the visual material that has inspired him, from Afghan war rugs, medieval altarpieces and satirical prints to the paintings of Peter Bruegel, Anselm Kiefer and the American outsider artist Henry Darger. With an up-to-date biography, bibliography and exhibition history, this definitive book explores fully the achievements of Perry's career.
