Grayson Perry: Who Are You?

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

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.
