R.I.P. H.R. Giger
Feb. 5, 1940 – May 12th, 2014

Yesterday, one of the most influential artists for our dark and underground communities died. H.R. Giger, designer of the world’s most famous Alien and pioneer of dark and twisted art died at age 74 from injuries suffered from a fall. He will be missed and mourned here at CVLT Nation. Check out this feature we did on his artwork a couple of years ago, by far our most visited post ever. 

“My paintings seem to make the strongest impression on people who are, well, who are crazy … if they like my work they are creative … or they are crazy.” – H.R. Giger (Feb. 5, 1940 – May 12th, 2014)
