Continuing in this theme, Perry has created a special manifesto for the Royal Academy of Arts under the authorship of Red Alan (pictured above), a ceramic sculpture of his famed childhood teddy bear, Alan Measles.

Special offer: Receive your very own print of the manifesto
Red Alan’s Manifesto will be exclusively available as an edition of napkins, printed on 100% cotton and measuring 60 x 60cm, to anyone who buys a Friends of the RA Membership from the 1 May to 31 August 2014. Standard Friends membership (£97) gives unlimited access to world-class exhibitions at the Royal Academy for a year.
“This is a rare opportunity to own a print of Red Alan’s Manifesto as they will not be available anywhere else,“ says Charles Saumarez Smith, Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy.
"We are extremely grateful to Grayson Perry for his continued support of the Friends of the RA. It is one of the largest Friends’ organisations of its kind in Europe and provides an invaluable source of financial support for the RA, which receives no public funding and relies heavily on the generosity of individuals, companies and foundations.”
