Grayson Perry: Who Are You?
Tuesday, ABC, 9.20pm
UK artist and Turner Prize-winner Grayson Perry (right) is best known for two things: his brightly decorated and often controversial ceramic vases, and cross-dressing. So you know you’re in for a wild ride as we witness him producing works of art that will be displayed in London’s National Portrait Gallery. In this series he creates a likeness of his models from all forms of art, including tapestries, statues and ceramics. But the real beauty is how he develops a connection to his sitters, be they transgender, hearing-impaired, Muslim or living with Alzheimer’s disease. An insightful way to view a subject through an artist’s eyes.
