RIP The Great H.R. Giger (1940-2014)Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 13 May 2014
We were sad to hear this morning that renowned Swiss artist H.R. Giger has passed away. Most well known for designing the monster and sets for Ridley Scott's "Alien," Giger influenced a generation of artists and filmmakers. Giger's work melded and combined mechanical, machine and human elements into nightmarish creatures, creating surrealist images in a style he described as "biomechanical" or "biomechanoids."
