The Alex Grey wall calendar takes the viewer on a psychedelic and visionary journey through the physical, metaphysical, and spiritual anatomy of the self. Grey's portrayals of human beings blend scientific exactitude with depictions of universal life energy, leading us to the discovery of our divinely illuminated core.
Grey is the author of Transfigurations, Sacred Mirrors, The Mission of Art, and Net of Being. His art has become integrated into popular culture through tattoo art and album covers for TOOL, Nirvana, and the Beastie Boys.
Alex Grey was born in Columbus, Ohio. He first attended the Columbus College of Art and Design and then studied with the conceptual artist Jay Jaroslav at the Boston Museum School, where he met his wife, artist Allyson Rymland Grey. During this period he had a series of entheogenically induced mystical experiences that transformed his agnostic existentialism to a radical transcendentalism. Grey 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 is the author of Transfigurations, Sacred Mirrors and The Mission of Art. His work has graced the album covers of Tool, Nirvana and the Beastie Boys, and has been exhibited around the world.
