Alien Artist H.R. Giger Dies at 74

Posted by Eddie Siqueira Tuesday, May 13, 2014
The visionary artist who brought us biotechnological images of terror and sexuality, which helped to transform the world of science fiction into a category of respect has, literally, fallen to his death in his home in Zurich, Switzerland. A fluke accident while tripping down the stairs.

Giger beats all recent deaths in the arts/entertainment world (OK maybe not de Lucia). His work was extremely avant-garde, and included the beloved Alien creature in Ridley Scott's 1979 epic movie and its sequels.

Film and canvas weren't his only outlets, as bands used his artwork for album covers (such as Celtic Frost, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Carcass, and Danzig). He even designed art for a series of Ibanez guitars and designed Korn frontman Jonathan Davis's live mic stand.

You can also directly view his art in the H.R. Giger museum in Gruyères and theme bars in Gruyères and Chur, both in Switzerland. RIP, Giger! What's your favorite piece of Giger work? Will there ever be such an intense oeuvre in sci-fi again? Comment, and check out some of his work, it's phenomenal.
