Grayson Perry: Smash Hits

Grayson Perry, Victoria Coren Mitchell, Patrick Elliott, Tor Scott

Grayson Perry is one of Britain's most celebrated contemporary artists and cultural figures. This book, which includes first sight of new and previously unpublished works, is published to accompany the largest-ever retrospective of Perry's art.

It offers a vibrant insight into his life and work, from his youth in rural Essex to sell-out stage shows at the Royal Albert Hall. Grayson Perry vividly reflects on his art, life and career, remembering the sources of inspiration and influences along the way. Victoria Coren Mitchell's thought-provoking contribution considers the role of humour in Perry's art, highlighting the often-underestimated effort involved in being at once a serious artist and a lovable character. Patrick Elliott provides an illuminating biographical essay of the artist. The reader is also given a fascinating glimpse into the technique and process behind Perry's prints, pots and tapestries.

Showcasing 76 exhibited works, the book covers the full range and breadth of his astonishing career.
