- Full Description
For decades H.R. Giger (1940—2014) reigned as one of the leading exponents of fantastic art. His work ranged from surrealistic dream landscapes created with a spray gun and stencils to album cover designs for famous pop stars to sculptures. In addition, Giger’s multi-faceted career included designing two bars, located in Tokyo and Chur, as well as work on various film projects—his most famous, 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).
This collects important work from throughout his life, from early pen and ink renderings to his final brightly colored pieces. It also features a lengthy section of his erotic art, none of which we can include here, being very explicit. Full biography and profusely illustrated, all at a bargain price.
After he studied interior and industrial design for eight years at the School of Commercial Art in Zurich, Switzerland, from 1962 till 1970, he soon gained attention as an independent artist. With the film work on Alien, he became an international figure, with art books like H.R. Giger and The Necronomicon becoming bestsellers and cult classics.
