Grayson Perry’s tapestries tell the story of class mobility

As an English ex-pat, I am always interested by opinions and stereotypes on what people think England is really like. So I was fascinated by Grayson Perry’s tapestries. The 2003 Turner prize winner went on a safari amongst the taste tribes of Britain to gather inspiration for his artworks, literally weaving the characters he met into a narrative partly inspired by Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress. He comments: ‘The tapestries tell the story of class mobility, for I think nothing has as strong an influence on our aesthetic taste as the social class in which we grow up’.



About the author

A love of traveling, art, and denim saw this Brit native mix them all up. The result was art crafted from denim and a new home in Sweden. Even though he once lived in Australia and never rode a wave, Denimu is only slightly better with a keyboard and likes to write about the things he has seen on his travels and the people he meets along the way.
