Lot Details

A Modern-day master of Surrealism, H. R. Giger (Swiss, b.1940) is not only the mastermind behind the Alien films, for which he won an Academy Award in 1980, but he is also an artist in his own right. Giger’s nightmarish aesthetic carries over into his paintings and sculptures, as seen in this work, which is an excellent example of the artist’s ability to imagine and then bring to life his fascinating and unique creatures. This work measures 23.6 x 4.3 x 6.3 inches (59.9 x 10.9 x 16 cm), is edition 52 of 99 and is in excellent condition.
