Description

H.R. Giger’s multifaceted career, from surrealistic dream landscapes to album cover designs and sculptures. For decades H.R. Giger (1940 2014) reigned as one of the leading exponents of fantastic art.

After he studied interior and industrial design for eight years at the School of Commercial Art in Zurich, Switzerland, from 1962 till 1970, he was soon gaining attention as an independent artist, with endeavours ranging from surrealistic dream landscapes created with a spray gun and stencils, to album cover designs for famous pop stars, and sculptures.

In addition, Giger’s career included designing two bars, located in Tokyo and Chur, as well as work on various film projects. His creation of the set design and title figure for Ridley Scott’s film Alien won him not only international fame but also an Academy Award for Best Achievement for Visual Effects (1980).
