Grayson Perry walked away from the Royal Television Society Awards with Best Arts Programme and Best Presenter last night for his Channel 4 series, All Man. “In your face, David Attenborough!”, Perry jokingly exclaimed as he collected his prize (Attenborough being the go-to favourite to usually win them).
In All Man Perry visits ultra-male worlds to explore how contemporary masculinity shapes the lives and expectations of men in Britain today, while reflecting on his own identity and prejudices.
Perry is perhaps best known as a ceramics and textiles-based artist, and was appointed a CBE in 2013 for his works in the Arts.
If you would like to check out more of Perry’s works, we have the following books at LRC WISE and LRC Queens Road: Sketchbooks (738.092 WISE), The Tomb of The Unknown Craftsman (738.092 WISE), Portrait of The Artist as a Young Girl (738.9092 QR), The Eye (DVD 750.92, QR).
