It is with much regret that I share the sad news of H. R Gigers passing.

The creator of our much beloved Xenomorph has died aged 74 in hospital after falling down stairs at his home in Zurich. We all know him best for the work he did on 'Alien' but Giger was a prestigious artist and one of the most influential creators of our time. His living influence on dark and surreal art will be greatly missed. Naturally our thoughts are with Gigers family during these tragic times.

February 5th, 1940 - May 12th, 2014

May you be teaching the Devil all there is to know about the twisted arts~

Oh, no! He was a visionary genius, if a bit twisted. Sad for him to go.

His art use to scare me as a kid, and now he's gone. I don't know if there will be another film in the Alien series or not since he's dead

Definitely a loss.Waaaah!   Giger's dark, twisted but beautiful art helped inspire a new breed of movie monster.  Also he designed one strange Batmobile.  RIP.
