Grayson Perry b. 1960

Description

Winner of 2003’s Turner Prize, Grayson Perry RA takes a swipe at the art establishment. His etching depicts an ‘island of bad art’ resembling Venice, home to the celebrated contemporary art biennale.

British-born Perry’s etching presents the viewer with a 16th-century style map. And creates the same dissonance between conventional form and personal message the artist achieves in his best-known medium, ceramics.
