Greyson Perry is a wonderfully creative, expressive and very English contemporary artist. He paints, creates and decorates ceramic vases, produces massive intricate tapestries and treats himself as a blank canvas as he cross-dresses in elaborate dresses as his alter-ego Claire. His artwork is a cross section between the traditional and the new. His works have a strong autobiographical bent to them and an element that often pops up is his childhood teddy bear Alan Measles. Alan became Greyson’s protector, a demi-god and a substitute father. His love for this teddy bear shows up in his work again and again. I too love Alan Measles ♥
