Giger's multi-faceted career

From surrealistic dream landscapes, to album cover designs, and sculpture

HR Giger Arh+

US$ 9.99
Not available
For the last three decades H.R. Giger has 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 (1962-1970), he was soon gaining attention as an independent artist, with endeavors ranging from surrealistic dream landscapes created with a spray gun and stencils, to album cover designs for famous pop stars, and sculpture. In addition, Giger’s multi-faceted career includes 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 award for Best Achievement for Visual Effects (1980).

"The more famous I get, the more I am tolerated, albeit with some head-shaking."
—H.R. Giger
  • "There have been several collections of Giger’s work, and it can be difficult to know where to start to get a good primer. This is where HR Giger Arh+ comes in, serving as a great introduction to a wide range of works covering several decades."
