Grayson Perry (English artist)


* Grayson Perry, CBE, is known mainly for his ceramic vases and cross-dressing. Perry's vases have classical forms and are decorated in bright colours, depicting subjects at odds with their attractive appearance. There is a strong autobiographical element in his work, in which images of Perry as "Claire", his female alter-ego, often appear. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2003, the first time it was given to a ceramic artist. He attended the award ceremony dressed as Claire, wearing a little girl party frock. Perry has Taurus rising, ruled by Venus in Pisces in the offbeat 11th House. Double-identity Mercury is conjunct his Venus and both are ruled and trined by Neptune in Scorpio on the Descendant, explaining the sexually explicit content of much of his work.
Data for his chart comes from his autobiography (details below, courtesy of Andrea Miles).
