Daily Art: RA Magazine Cover by Grayson Perry

Pin It

Today's Daily Art is the cover of the new Royal Academy magazine by Grayson Perry. It is an attempt to comment on the tastes of the British public, especially those who visit the annual Summer Exhibition. The cover is bright and lively but it leaves me unmoved. The colours are more Las Vegas than British middle class, although I have to admit, it's a relief to see the British being associated with colours other than the Red, Blue and White of the Union Jack. The usual middle class favourites - Waitrose, Radio 4, Mulberry and Le Creuset find their way onto the poster which makes it look even more gimmicky and too much like an advertisement . 

Despite the cover I’m still going to visit the exhibition next week. Expect a deluge about the all the Art I cannot wait to see.

Hope you all have a lovely long weekend!
