  1. Anyone here like Alex Grey? I recently just found out about him and I'm looking into getting one of his books. Can anyone recommend Transfigurations over Sacred Mirrors, or visa versa?

    For those who don't know who Alex Grey is, check out his website www.alexgrey.com. He's the one who did the artwork on Tool's Lateralus album. Check it out, it's a real trip!
     
  2. i love alex gray. i first saw his work on the cover of the sci album, untying the knot...that is amazing. then i started checking out the rest of his work and i had to do an art project on him. he said that him and his wife eat hallucinogens to inspire their work and that some of his work can even be found on sheets of acid. i wasn't aware that he had any books out so i can't help you out on that one. but if you get one tell me how you like it.

  4. Ya, if you search on eBay for "alex grey" you can get some blotter art. If I were making some blotter, that's what I would use, without a doubt!
     
  5. That's a great job, how long did that take you? What kind of paints did you use? Your friend is lucky to have you as a friend! :D

    Ah yes...Alex Grey. Love his work. :) I think my favorite paintings by him are: New Man/New Woman, Oversoul, Painting...and of course Theologue. Hopefully I will be meeting him soon. :)
