Art world ‘out of touch’ claims artist’s cross-dressing teddy-loving alter-ego
Dressed as his flamboyant female alter-ego, Claire, in gingham and pigtails, cross-dressing former Turner Prize-winner, Grayson Perry, has accused the art establishment of being out of touch with ‘the real world.’
‘It’s almost as if artists feel they inhabit a different world of fantasy and self-indulgence, far removed from the everyday,’ said Perry, wearing a puff-sleeved dress and too much rouge.
The outburst came as Perry, 51, returned from a road trip across Bavaria on a bright pink motorcycle. ‘Artists are just too disengaged from the lives of ordinary people.’ opined the artist to his muse and travelling companion; an antique teddy bear called Alan Measles.
