H.R. Giger Retrospective

As most of you probably know by now, the artist H.R. Giger, who masterminded the aesthetic behind the move Alien, died this week at the age of 74. Much of Giger's work deals with biomechanical figures and themes of sexuality, death, and new religion, and because he's one of the most high profile dark artists of our time, I thought I'd give a brief retrospective of some of my favorite of his works of art:

If you want to see more, Dark Side of the Net posted a round-up of H.R. Giger documentaries and interviews, which are all definitely worth a look.

RIP  Mr. Giger
February 5, 1940 - May 12, 2014

  1. I love the birth machine sculpture. It feels like something of a cliché to say you like Giger now, but I love his aesthetic and interplay of themes. It's sad to hear that he's passed away.
