"Mindfulness, the aware, balanced acceptance of present experience, is at the heart of what the Buddha taught.”
—Sylvia Boorstein

Alex and Allyson Grey

Alex and Allyson Grey are artists whose works cover a diverse variety of art forms including painting, sculpture, visionary art, performance art, and installation art. Alex specializes in spiritual and visionary art for which he is famous all over the world. After studying fine arts in college Alex went to medical school where he spent five years in the anatomy department preparing cadavers for dissection; his anatomical training greatly influenced his paintings. He was also greatly interested in existentialism and experimented with drugs in order to induce mystical experiences. He is famous for his 'x-ray' style of painting and his works of art often present the stages of developing psyche. He has the unique skill of portraying clairvoyant visions and psychedelic themes in his works. His works explore the physical, metaphysical and spiritual anatomy of the human life experiences in a blend of visionary and postmodern art. His partner Allyson is a painter and social sculptor. With an MFA from Tufts University, Allyson Grey has long been an art educator, arts organizer and muse to artists worldwide. Since art school in 1975, Allyson has collaborated and shared a studio with the artist, Alex Grey. The Grey's co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, (CoSM; cosm.org), a spiritual retreat center for artists outside of New York City. As long-time advocates of "cognitive liberty," a growing international "sacramental culture" has embraced the Grey's as mapmakers and spokespersons for the visionary realm.
