Is Alex Grey the next 'Leonardo Da Vinci?' Perhaps. History shall tell. Certainly he is the most unique artist of our time and the next five hundred years!
Thirteen to nineteen year olds know Alex Grey's art. Eight year olds know Alex Grey's works and forty year olds have posters of his art hanging on their walls in their homes.
After viewing his art you will be changed. In what way? Check it out and you tell me. You've seen it everywhere without even realizing it was Alex Grey's!
After attending 'MIND STATES IV' at UC Berkeley, California with some of the most brilliant minds alive on earth, Alex Grey's works were certainly the most enlightening of everything I experienced there, of this I am certain.
Have you ever been in a room and the light was so bright in one spot it nearly blinded you and everything else in the room paled in comparison? Perfect description of Grey's work.
Funny how people ahead of their time are seen but not really. Like they are planting their seeds and long after they are gone the whole world including the planets presently being inhabited will scratch their heads (antenna?) in amazement while looking at the art of Alex Grey.
Define it? You can't. At one time I thought, 'Oh I know, his paintings are helping usher in the age of 'oneworld without borders'. They are, but oh so much more.
They activate all our senses at once and go beyond common words in describing what you have seen. It's art and science combined. One thing is clear; never before and perhaps never again in our lifetimes will you see art like this.
I'm not a 'fan type' persona. Yet Alex has tapped into some divine mind that is simply 'reopening' my third eye that goes beyond 'fan status'.
Thinking a zillion ways at once with ideas flowing like water happen while viewing a 'Grey' painting. His past performance pieces are extraordinary.
One question. When will the female 'Leonardo da Vinci' appear? And why is she still 'On the Back of the Bus'? After all we are in the process of inhabiting other planets. Surely there is one female artist alive with light as bright as Alex Greys!
Maybe when women stop birthing through their bodies completely; within 75-100 years or less, they will have time to give birth to their own creative geniuses instead of nurturing others.
I'm ready for 'Ms Who Is' instead of 'Ms. Whose That?' how bout' you?
Ah Mr. Grey, your art does make us think. I am so happy 'On the Road With Judy!' decided to attend Mind States IV at UC Berkeley, California!
