You lucky bugger, that's dang coolWhoracle said:Met him twice (oh joy of friends of friends knowing people...). He was a really nice guy, his Art was great, and in certain fields of Art he laid the foundation.
I'm gonna miss him.
OT: This is of course a massive shame, although I feel bad considering me and my girlfriend didn't realise that he was still alive
I've always loved Gigers work, even as a child; my mother has a load of Escher and Giger pieces around the house, which I really enjoyed, waaaay before I understood the significance of either, though Giger always intrigued me more. Not only is the content supurb, he combines classical pencil art with surrealism in a way that gains the best of both worlds, with none of the insane extreme preteniousness of surrealism.
My favourite piece, although I can't remember the name, nor can I find a picture was one with a deformed man on the right sitting on a sofa, while on the other side, a female/alien hybrid thing was traversing a floor made of babies.
