H R Giger

Born February 5 in Chur, Switzerland, Giger was best known for his “biomechanical” airbrushed images that blended human physiques with machines. He was also responsible for creating the “Alien” creature for the film of the same name. His work is permanently featured in a dedicated museum in Gruyères.

This is: Mikrokosmos (it reminded me of the cover of the Emerson, Lake and Palmer album – Brain Salad Surgery, and it turns out he created that too.)
