Known for creating their iconic spiritual paintings, Alex and Allyson are the co-founders of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, or COSM, a nonprofit organization and contemporary public chapel that is a sanctuary for spiritual renewal through contemplation of transformative art in New York. Their work has been praised since the 1970s for their other-worldly and signature styles that are instantly recognizable to those that know them - from Tool album covers to the MAPS logo. The soul behind their livelihood and both of their works leaves one hugely intrigued and introspective… much like listening to this episode will likely leave you.
