Visionary Art of Alex Grey

Alex Grey is considered a "shamanic visionary artist" by many.  Though his work is not specifically all Pagan oriented, his practice of of Vajrayana Buddhism lends his art spiritual and universal themes that we Pagans can relate to.

Alex was born in Columbus, Ohio on November 29, 1953, and was the son of a graphic designer who encouraged his drawing ability. In the 1970's and 80's Alex spent five years at Harvard Medical School working in the Anatomy department studying the body and preparing cadavers for dissection. One can see this anatomical drawing ability in his work. Alex now teaches at The Open Center  in New York City; Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado; the California Institute of Integral Studies and the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York.
