Grey has produced groundbreaking album art for bands such as Tool, Nirvana and the Beastie Boys. In addition to his fine art, Grey is a globally recognized leader in the mystical arts and transcendentalism, teaching, along with his wife at CoSM in Wappinger New York. While his work is avidly collected by fans of psychedelic art and culture, Grey's work has a direct connection to the late surrealist Pavel Tchelitchew, as both artists invested much of their careers into studying and depicting the human anatomy.
From 1982, this early work is a seminal entry into Grey’s physical depictions of spiritual visions. The loose handling of the piece shows Grey at a prototypical, raw stage in his storied career. —Courtesy of Doyle
