Giger-Alien

H. R. Giger on the set of Alien.

H. R. Giger, who passed away in early 2014, was a Swiss surrealist painter, sculptor, and set designer. His work on the science fiction film “Alien” won him an Academy Award for visual effects in 1980.

Some of Giger’s work can be purchased here. You can also see Giger’s work in person at the H.R. Giger Museum in Gruyeres, Switzerland.

What do you guys think of Giger’s work?

  1. Giger was a real visionary, I know none better than him that can capture the soul and essence of nightmares so unflinchingly, from the fantastical metal beasts to the disturbingly vivid sexual undertones, particularly in his necronomicon series. His spirit will live on forever as people remember the power of Alien. Anything you feel for that film you owe to him.
