H.R. Giger Art: Paintings
From 1966, Giger’s first paintings were made, most of them in oil. After the artist discovered the airbrush technique for himself in 1972, this soon became his preferred way of painting. In the following 20 years, around 600 paintings with ink and acrylic paints were created. In the early 1990s, Giger gave up painting to devote himself to sculpture art.

Life masks are facial impressions of people in plaster or a similar material. They are also called life masks or original reliefs. In the development of film productions in Hollywood, such facial casts of actors began to be made as early as the 1920s. This allowed the make-up artists to try out plastic changes to the face at their leisure, thus saving the actors hours of make-up sessions. The process of casting first created a negative mold from which the faces were obtained for the makeup artists. The negative went into the studios’ archives after production. This method of making facial impressions developed into a tradition in Hollywood that today gives us collectibles that are as unique as they are valuable.
