I think Giger was "in contact" with something
but if they were "aliens"..we'll never know.
It is NO mistake that the creatures he depicted in the "ALIEN" movies strikes a deep chord of fear in each and every one of us. He just MIGHT have
had a glimpse of what some refer to as demons. He is a relatively well know satanist, as his work depicts.
Dark, Occult & Recent Satanic Art
Macabre and horrific sequential artists. Sensual and Evocative ?Fantasy? artists. Hell-bent contemporary artists of note. 20th Century outsider art.
Limp tentatively into the alley and push through the creaking, rusted metal door into a damp, alien corridor. Ignore the gibbering insects of unseemly
size and unfamiliar origin. This is your introduction to an underworld of Satanic art.
H.R. Giger (born 1940)
Designer, Painter, Sculptor
Few artists have achieved such complete and uncompromising realization of their darkest, most “alien” fantasies. Even fewer have been able to
successfully parlay these fantasies into commercial success. As further evidence of a Satanic Age...H.R. Giger's own museum and various “Giger
Bars” scattered across the globe are described, on the artist's own web site, as “total environments.”
I dont know about you, but that creature is about the scariest thing I have ever seen. They look about as close to what I could picture a "demon" to
look, and wether you "believe" in them or not, you have to admit they are a very convincing depiction of what one would imagine a demon to look
I draw that correlation only from research done on the artist, his influences, genre and current belief system based loosely on Satanism. With hero's
such as Alister Crowley, its hardly a leap to make these connections.
While I do believe that it would be theoretically possible for creatures like these to exists somewhere in the deep vastness of the multiveres, after
reading an in depth bio on Giger, I feel his "influences" were something far more visceral and archaic than "aliens" per say:> Look it up...
