Not everyone can put a name to his face but Grayson Perry CBE is instantly recognisable by most people. He is an artist best known for his ceramic vases and cross–dressing. His vases have classical forms and are decorated in bright colours displaying subjects at odds with their attractive appearance. He is also an accomplished painter – again in bright colours but often with eccentric subject matters. Harry will tell us more about this unusual but highly talented man.
