His paintings have graced album covers for Nirvana, Tool, and String Cheese Incident—not to mention rave flyers and sheets of blotter acid. Juan Pablo Fernandez, who lives in Sunset Park, describes Grey’s work as ‘the best art that has come out in the last couple hundred years. Not only is it beautiful, but it has depth and meaning to it.’ Sweet words, but the two soft-spoken men have squared off in a lawsuit that raises questions about art piracy and permissible sales practices on the Internet…”–Village Voice
