H. R. Giger and his “Alien.”

HR-GigerSurrealist painter Hans Ruedi Giger, whose designs inspired the creature in Alien and whose otherworldly and often grotesque art graced album covers for Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Debbie Harry and Danzig, died at age 74.
Giger once described his artwork as “biomechanical,” the BBC reports, and earned renown for his monochromatic dystopian landscapes and perverse monsters.
Many paintings featured genitalia in the art, while others found machines fused to organic beings.
“My paintings seem to make the strongest impression on people who are, well, who are crazy,” Giger said in a 1979 interview, according to the Associated Press. “If they like my work they are creative … or they are crazy.”
