Alex & Allyson Grey, world renowned visionary artists, will be at Banyen for a few hours on Sunday April 30th to connect with the community and to sign books and posters. CoSM merchandise, including all of Alex Grey’s books, posters and stickers will be available for purchase.

This event is part of Alex Grey and Allyson Grey's debut appearance in Vancouver which includes a unique series of art and culture events: an art workshop, a feature presentation, a multimedia event, and a book signing/public appearance. More information about these events can be found here.

Alex & Allyson Grey's feature presentation was at the Vogue Theatre on Friday, April 28th. They spoke about visionary art and life.

Alex Grey's mystic paintings articulate realms of psychedelic visionary consciousness, revealing interwoven energies of body and soul, love and spirit, illuminating the anatomical core of each being. Alex Grey's visual meditations on the nature of life and consciousness, the subject of his art, have reached millions through his five books, the exhibition and extensive reproduction of his artwork, speaking appearances including a popular TED talk, stage sets for major rock bands, video animation and Grammy award winning album art.

Allyson Grey is both a painter and a creator of art experiences. Allyson’s painting career portrays her commitment to an essentialized world view consisting of chaos, order and secret writing. Her blog, “Ask Allyson about Art & Life” addresses practical, creative and spiritual matters. An MFA from Tufts University, Allyson has served as an art educator, an art events producer and a muse to artists worldwide.


Together the Grey's co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (CoSM), a spiritual retreat center for artists. On the forefront of a movement in which painters join musicians on stage, the Grey's have painted together live before tens of thousands of people at New York's Broadway theaters, at sold-out festivals and arenas in dozens of cities across five continents. As long-time advocates of "cognitive liberty,” a growing international art movement has embraced the Grey's as important mapmakers and spokespersons for the visionary realm.
