"A mysterious blend of erotic beauty and ferocity." - New York Times

"The clandestine has always attracted people, just as the forbidden fruit
has. The same goes for Giger and his powerful work. He goes beyond
conventional; he takes things further than most of us do". 
- Deborah Harry, Musician

"I think you would have to compare Giger's work on ALIEN to the great 
German expressionistic films of the early part of this century, 
such as the CABINET OF DR CALIGARI and NOSFERATU. At its essence, 
Giger's art digs down into our psyches and touches our very deepest 
primal instincts and fears". - Ridley Scott, Director

"I don't know anybody else who has so accurately captured 
the soul of modern humanity. A few decades from now, 
when they talk about the 20th century, they will think of Giger." 
- Oliver Stone, Director

"The Master of Fantastic Art." - Omni Magazine

"Giger surely has one of the most original visions in late 20th-century
art." - Clive Barke, Artist and Director

"He is our latter-day Hieronymus Bosch, the Dutch fabulist come again,
demonic and erotic." - Harlan Ellison, Writer
