Twenty years after the original publication of The Mission of Art, Alex Grey's inspirational message affirming art's power for personal catharsis and spiritual awakening is stronger than ever. This book combines extensive knowledge of art history with phases of human consciousness evolution and shares firsthand experiences in creating art at the boundaries of madness and mysticism. Grey examines the roles of conscience and intention in the creative process, including practical techniques and exercises useful in exploring the spiritual dimensions of art. Challenging and thought-provoking, The Mission of Art will be appreciated by everyone who has ever contemplated the deeper purpose of creative expression.
