Alex Grey is best known for his paintings which “X-ray” multiple dimensions of reality, interweaving physical and biological anatomy with psychic and spiritual energies. Grey’s visual meditation on the nature of life and consciousness, the subject of his art, is contained in three books. His two monographs, Sacred Mirrors and Transfigurations, follow the history of Grey’s artistic life. The Mission of Art reflects on art as a spiritual practice. Grey’s world renown career includes exhibitions and keynote addresses from Basel, to Tokyo, to Sao Paulo, and features on the Discovery Channel, in Newsweek and Time Magazines. Grey’s art has been used on albums for the multi-platinum bands Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Tool, and String Cheese Incident.
