This past week the great Swiss surrealist artist H.R. Giger passed at the age of seventy-four. This visionary made an indelible impression on the world of art, film and beyond, creating a body of work so unique that it became visual language all its own. Easily his most recognizable achievement is the exceptional design work he did on the original Alien monster design, but in spite of that alone being an impressive achievement, his work encompassed so much more. So let’s take a look at the dark, bizarre and jaw-dropping work of this one of a kind master with a handful of artistic greats who owe this master a debt of gratitude for the inspiration he’s provided throughout the years!
