Swiss Artist H.R. Giger, who is best known for designing the iconic look of Alien, has died at age 74. An employee told Swiss media [via Reuters] that Giger died on Monday in Zurich from injuries he obtained after suffering a fall. Giger, who worked in multiple formats including ink drawing, polyester, airbrush, and more, described his work as “biomechanical” as it frequently fused the human and the industrial into surreal images. His work was always eye-catching and enduring to the point where, as seen in Jodorowsky’s Dune, the designs he did for Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s failed attempt to make Dune eventually landed up in Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus. That’s not to mention all of his work that adorned VHS boxes, album covers, and the fact that he even has his own museum in a medieval castle in Switzerland.
Our deepest condolences go out to Mr. Giger’s family and friends.
