Index of works "Giger-Raucherstuhl.jpg" through "Giger-sculpture_1.jpg"
When Giger was 22 years old, he moved to Zurich where he studied architecture and industrial design at the School of Applied Arts, graduating 3 years later. By 26 he arranged his first solo art exhibition. While H.R. Giger is well-known for his grotesque paintbrush paintings he is also a sculptor and a set designer. A great number of H.R.Giger's work reflects his obsession with mechanical functions of human beings, often depicting deformed human figures seemingly engraved with mechanical parts.
