H R Giger

Hans Rudolf “Ruedi” Giger was a Swiss surrealist painter, whose style was adapted for many forms of media, including record-albums, furniture and tattoo-art. The Zurich-based artist was best known for airbrush images of humans and machines linked together in a cold ‘biomechanical’ relationship. Later he abandoned airbrush work for pastels, markers or ink.

He was part of the special effects team that won an Academy Award for design work on the film Alien.

In Switzerland there are two theme-bars that reflect his interior designs, and his work is on permanent display at the H.R. Giger Museum at Gruyères.
