H.R. Giger, actually less known for his full name, Hans Ruedi Giger, is a Swiss artist who created highly influential artwork in the style of Fantastic-Realism. He was born on February 5, 1940, in Chur, Switzerland. Giger's developed interest in morbid and frightful images, as he describes himself, has been possibly influenced by a sleeping disorder and/or birth trauma. For anyone interested in learning more about the craft of this Swiss artist, I suggest picking up the book titled H.R. Giger's Necronomicon, which is a collection of H.R. Giger's paintings and sketches. The book also includes the author's biographical reflection on his own work.
