According2g would love to wish artist Alex Grey a very happy birthday today, November 29. As you all know, I’ve seen a lot of art in my life and I have to say, Alex Grey’s work definitely ranks towards the top of the list. The detail in his paintings is MIND-BLOWING. In addition, his works fuse the realms of the physical and spiritual worlds and even if you are not interested in those areas, you can’t help but be awed by the scale and precision of his paintings. Grey’s Chapel of Scared Mirrors, a permanent art exhibit, used to be located in Manhattan (now located in upstate New York) and if you ever get the chance to go visit, I highly recommend it! I used to bring all of my out of town guests to the chapel and whether they loved art or not, nearly everyone I brought to the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors left with tears in their eyes. Also, nearly every guest ranked their visit to the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors their favorite excursion that we took during their trip to New York City! If that doesn’t speak volumes… When I met Mr. Grey earlier this year, I was lucky enough to get the chance to tell him how much I love his work and he was extremely nice. Thanks again Alex and I hope you have a wonderful birthday. Namaste!
