Alex GreyOversoulDyingKissingVision CrystalArtist's Hand

Artist Alex Grey is best known for his paintings of glowing anatomical human bodies, images that "x-ray" the multiple layers of reality and reveal the complex integration of body, mind, soul and spirit. Grey's unique series of 21 life-sized paintings, the Sacred Mirrors, present the physical and subtle anatomy of an individual in the context of cosmic, biological and technological evolution.

His paintings have appeared in venues as diverse as the album art of TOOL, the Beastie Boys and Nirvana, covers for Newsweek magazine, the Discovery Channel, and recently in an article about his work and life in the New York Times.

Grey's artworks have been exhibited and performed throughout the world and are chronicled in three books: Sacred Mirrors: The Visionary Art of Alex Grey, the recently released monograph, Transfigurations and his philosophical text, The Mission of Art. An audiotape of Grey's reflections on art as a spiritual practice, entitled The Visionary Artist, was produced by Sounds True.

Grey has exhibited and lectured throughout the world including, Tokyo, Manaus, Barcelona, Amsterdam and throughout the U.S. At his recent mid-career retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, Grey presented the Sacred Mirrors and other works of painting and sculpture.

Alex lives in Brooklyn, New York with his wife, the painter, Allyson Grey and their daughter, the actress, Zena Grey.
