Potrait of Grayson Perry, by Chris McAndrew

One of the best-known British artists of today, Perry (b. 1960) employs a wide variety of techniques and materials. His works range from large woodcuts, tapestries and cast-iron sculptures to prints, dresses and even an entire house. Perry calls himself “a tranny potter” and explores a climate in which people fear difference and retreat to the safe confines of their own group.
