Hans Ruedi Giger (pronounced: GEE-ger) (born February 5, 1940) is a Swiss graphic artist best known for his design work on the film Alien. Giger's Alien design earned him an Oscar.
He is also well known for art work on a number of big-selling records including Emerson Lake and Palmer's Brain Salad Surgery[?]. His style uses fetishistic sexual imagery and is considered disturbing by some.
