The grayson perry art club is a gallery for art lovers to buy, sell and admire works of art by artist graniel perry. Grayson perry is a renowned british ceramicist, born in 1962 in the town of kent. He was born into a working class family, his father a miner, his mother carrying out domestic duties.
The art club was started in 2008 with the sale of an original ceramic artwork entitled “great man”. The piece was inspired by an episode from perry’s childhood where he witnessed his father being ridiculed by other men. “great man” (2008) sold for £1.6 million ($2.4 million) setting the record for the most expensive work by a living artist sold at auction. The sale of this work allowed the grayson perry art club to expand and open its doors to new members for the first time on the 17th september 2008.
Perry’s work is known for its cross-dressing themes and iconoclastic nature. Perry has stated that cross dressing is a metaphor for breaking down boundaries between people, allowing people to see beyond their own preconceptions of others to their intrinsic value as human beings. He has also said that his works are designed to provoke questions about gender
