Hansruedi Giger

Before You Proceed: Some people find this type of art disturbing or offensive

Because his father was the local pharmacist, he received a human skull as a professional promotion from a pharmaceutical firm, and from that point on the young Giger was taken spellbound by all things dark and strange. His talent was influenced by the works of Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau. Giger is one of the foremost Surrealists of this century, and he has taken the art form of Biomechanics to a new level. His works combine the erotic with death and technology to complete a piece that takes the viewer on an inner journey. In 1978 Giger began work on the film "Alien", and ended up sculpting much of the creatures and sets. In 1980 he was awarded an Oscar for his stunning work on "Alien". (Giger's other high-profile film projects include "Poltergeist II", "Alien3", and "Species") If you wish to explore the world of Giger further his web site address is http://www.giger.com/mainflash.htm (The web site design alone is worth the trip, fantastic use of javascript rollovers, design, and flash). The prices for his originals range from $10,000.00 to $25,000.00. Please proceed with an open mind.
