Hans Rudolf "Ruedi" Giger (1940 - 2014)

Hans Rudolf "Ruedi" Giger was born in 1940 in Chur, capital city of Graubünden, the largest and easternmost Swiss canton. Giger got his start with small ink drawings before progressing to oil paintings. For most of his career, Giger has worked predominantly in airbrush, creating monochromatic canvasses depicting surreal, nightmarish dreamscapes. However, he has now largely abandoned large airbrush works in favor of works with pastels, markers or ink. 
His most distinctive stylistic innovation is that of a representation of human bodies and machines in a cold, interconnected relationship, he described as "biomechanical". His paintings often display fetishistic sexual imagery.
