Grayson Perry Derides Contemporary Art In New Book

British artist, transvestite, ceramist and the Turner Prize winner published a caricature book.

Grayson Parry’s caricatures satirize the contemporary art world where the author made his name. The book is a short version of his 2013 BBC talk: <"http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/reith">The Reith Lectures. Grayson Parry discusses commercialization of contemporary art, its pseudo-elitism as well as painters who do not know how to use brushes. Perry inquires about what made him an artist, and where the line between art and “non-art” lies.

Price of the book on Amazon is £10,49.
