H.R. Giger was born in Chur, Switzerland in 1940. He passed away on May 12, 2014.
As a child, he developed a powerful fascination with all things surreal and macabre. His need to express himself and share the unique aspects of his vivid imagination drew him to the visual arts. Giger’s own dreams and the brilliant imagery of such fantastique geniuses as Gustav Meyrink, Jean Cocteau, Alfred Kubin and H.P. Lovecraft, combined to form a rich soil from which the amazing imagery of Giger’s art has come to sprout. It has grown into the vast canon of exotic women, wondrously disturbing landscapes and frightening creatures that has captured the fascination of millions of fans worldwide.
Meticulously detailed, Giger’s paintings are done on large canvases and worked and reworked by this maestro of the airbrush. It was Giger’s popular art book, Necronomicon, that caught the eye of director Ridley Scott as he was searching for the right look for a creature in his upcoming film. That creature, of course, turned out to be the Alien, and Giger’s masterful designs for the film of that same name garnered him a much deserved Academy Award.
Giger’s fascinating biomechanical style, that brilliant synthesis of flesh and machine, has been realized not only through his paintings, but also through sculpture pieces, elegant furniture, and architectural and interior design projects. His paintings have been displayed in galleries and museums throughout the world. H.R. Giger has earned his place in the international art scene.
