A world renowned artist of the multi-dimensional energies of the human body, Alex Grey presents the physical and subtle anatomy of an individual in the context of cosmic, biological and technological evolution. He developed his depictions of the human body that "x-ray" the multiple layers of reality, and reveal the interplay of anatomical and spiritual forces. He has applied this multidimensional perspective to such archetypal human experiences as praying, meditation, kissing, love making, pregnancy, birth, nursing and dying. Grey’s recent work has explored the subject of consciousness from the perspective of "universal beings" whose bodies are grids of fire, eyes and infinite galactic swirls.
Alex Grey went to the Columbus College of Art and Design before attending the Boston Museum School to study with the conceptual artist, Jay Jaroslav. Mr. Grey then spent five years at Harvard Medical School working in the Anatomy department studying the body and preparing cadavers for dissection. He also worked at Harvard's department of Mind/Body Medicine with Dr. Herbert Benson and Dr. Joan Borysenko conducting scientific experiments to investigate subtle healing energies. Grey's anatomical training prepared him for painting the Sacred Mirrors and for doing medical illustration. He serves on the core faculty of Ken Wilber's Integral University.
