Grayson Perry, artist and interviewee on Imagine…it's the surreal thing has created an extraordinary map of his own mind, entitled 'Map of an Englishman'. It illustrates an imaginary island, almost brain-shaped, surrounded by seas - Schizophrenia, Delirium, Anorexia Nervosa. The countryside is dotted with features - Anger, Sex, Dementia, Cheerleader - which represent Grayson's 'prejudices, fears, desires and vanities'.

Simply view the gallery to see Map of an Englishman close up, or click each panel below.
