—Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessing and Creativity: Where the Divine and the Human Meet
“Grey’s vision of a flawed, but perfectible mankind stands as an antidote to the cynicism and spiritual malaise prevalent in much contemporary art.”
—New York Times
“Alex Grey is one of the great art-mystics of our time.”
—Donald Kuspit, professor of art history and philosophy, SUNY at Stoney Brook, and editor and critic for Artforum
“Whether a believer or non-believer, one could not help but be inspired by the sheer beauty of this volume, and the social heartbeat of this book…. The artwork is eye-grabbing, spirit-quickening, expressive-surrealism in a style uniquely Alex Grey's. Reminiscent of Leonardo Da Vinci's mastery, his anatomical plotting brings to mind mirrors of astronomical maps, connecting the body, mind and soul to the oneness of all, through synaptically charged points of light. The images pulse with light and life. Each tenderly rendered vision is accompanied by written timeless truths. One is serenaded and lifted by songs of the ages as told by Grey. The verses themselves seem to follow the illuminated body seamlessly, honoring humanity and the universe.”
—Tina Jones, for About.com

It's a fabulous book. Buy direct, and help support Alex's temple vision.
Art truly is a divine practice.
- Maria Sabina
This is truly a sacred book whose birth makes the world shake. Art Psalms is a unique and original vision of a kind that appears only once in many generations. Drawing on the wisdom of ancient traditions as well as his own direct experience of the divine forces, Alex Grey presents an alchemical distillation of the common meaning behind every religious and spiritual tradition. Universal love and oneness are affirmed, cynicism is obliterated, and cryptic metaphors are discarded in favor of clear and understandable wisdom. Artists of all stripes will find an endless wellspring of divine inspiration in this great teaching. Get it!
