Internationally renowned for paintings that “X-ray” multi-dimensional reality, Alex Grey interweaves biological anatomy with psychic/spiritual energies in his visual meditations on the nature of life and consciousness. This groundbreaking artwork has reached millions through Grey’s six books, extensive reproduction of his artwork, and dozens of keynote addresses and exhibitions from Tokyo to Sao Paulo to Moscow to Melbourne. Alex’s art and life has been featured on the Discovery Channel, The New York Times, Newsweek and Time magazines.
Alex Grey’s live, on stage, painting appearances, his collaboration with major rock bands, the use of his images in elaborate rock concert stage sets, his music video animations, and his Grammy award winning album art for Tool, Beastie Boys, Nirvana and String Cheese Incident (among others) have led to the celebration of his artwork by millions of music fans.
His books, Sacred Mirrors, The Mission of Art, Transfigurations, Art Psalms and Net of Being trace the development of his work and the mystical experiences that have shaped his personal, spiritual, and artistic life.
Committed to art that celebrates oneness, Alex and Allyson Grey, his wife and companion of 36 years, co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, (CoSM — cosm.org), a church celebrating creativity as a spiritual path. CoSM, once a 12,000 square foot spiritual/cultural center in the heart of New York City, now flourishes in the tranquil setting of a 40-acre interfaith spiritual 65 miles north of New York City.
