I love Alex Grey's work... I just bought a shirt with his "Theologue" painting on it.

Such a wonderful, cheerful, open-minded, and funny man. Such a delight to have such a gifted artist around during these troubling times.

I was in NYC this past June and got the opportunity to meet Alex, his wife, and his daughter; they are such a delightful family. I met them at the Open Center in SOHO for a talk he did about his lifes work.

I frequently visit his online gallery and I'm looking forward to seeing some of his new work when he displays it at the Frying Pan in NYC.

By the way, he said that he is planning to start the Chapel Project somewhere in Upstate NY....

On a related note.... saw TOOL last weekend...richmond and baltimore... Alex Grey did the art for the tour...fucking amazing

Had a massive backdrop of that eye/flames/cosmic vortex thing..amazing
Two screens above on either side playing Grey animations the entire show...
Halfway through the show seven tapestries unrolled..hanging from the ceiling... was 7 of the images from sacred mirrors..from skeletal system.. nerves...vessels...muscle...skin... psychic energy system... god...

blew my mind... tool and alex grey is a mind expanding combination

I saw Tool last month and it was an unforgettable experience. Alex Grey is truly...the shit. btw, those screens with animations weren't Alex Grey artwork, only the backdrops and Sacred Mirrors tapestries. although they were cool as hell too.
I just got my Transfiguration poster in the mail, this guy is the best contemporary artist. He beautifully combines science and spirituality. I just know his Chapel will be built... such amazing and beautiful art and such a profound vision cannot go undone.
