RIP, H. R. Giger

RIP, H. R. Giger, painter, sculpter, interior decorator, film concept artist

anyone been to the HR Giger bar?

Just want to note that while Aliens is his first movie, he was supposed to do Jodorowsky's Dune (the greatest movie never made). Here's a clip from the documentary of the same name where you can see the original concept art. He said it was some of the best work in his career. 


  1. Aww man. :( HR Giger was one of my favourite artists; I'm so sad to see him pass.

  2. I was really sad to hear the news. I believer that Giger is where science fiction visual art ends and begins. he is done such a great visual work for the pop and alternative culture, that imitating him or trying to come up with better looking aliens is just pathetic. I really love his paintings!!
