Hans Rudolf “Ruedi” Giger
Creator of the terrifying life forms and their otherworldly environment in the film classic Alien, for which he received the Oscar in 1980. Painter, sculptor, designer, interior architect, Giger extends his artistic vision into all domains. Fundamental to the nature of his work is his Biomechanical aesthetic, a dialectic between man and machine, representing a universe at once disturbing and sublime.
