In 2004, the Greys founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in New York, a cultural center and refuge for contemplation that celebrates a new alliance between divinity and creativity.
Exhibited worldwide, Alex's art has been honored with solo exhibitions at Feature Inc.
Doctors at Harvard saw images of his Sacred Mirrors, and hired Alex for illustration work.
For 2011 an 2012, the Watkins Review named Alex Grey one of the top twenty spiritual leaders alive today, in the company of such towering luminaries as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Eckhardt Tolle, and Oprah Winfrey.
At the Museum School, Alex met his life-long partner, the artist, Allyson Rymland Grey.
The themes of death and transcendence weave throughout his artworks, from the earliest drawings to later performances, paintings and sculpture.
Grey's first monograph, the large format art book entitled, Sacred Mirrors: The Visionary Art of Alex Grey, has been translated into five languages with well over one hundred thousand copies.
Grey instructed Artistic Anatomy and Figure Sculpture for ten years at New York University, and has taught the Visionary Art Intensive and other art workshops with Allyson at The New York Open Center, Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado, the California Institute of Integral Studies and Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York.
