A sad day.
Joining in on the chorus of sad Giger fans.
It’s sad news, I wouldn’t have minded meeting the man some day and I’ve been planning on buying Giger art for a while now, but I’m guessing they will become unaffordable instead of just expensive, soon.
I’m still very happy I went to see his museum in Gruyeres a few years back. Very powerful. An impressive artist. Who created art that radiates emotion off the canvasses. I still remember Viona being impressed by the detail and craft in the enormous wall covering canvasses and her reaction and emotion in the smaller red room.
This seems like a very interesting interview. Very personal with museum footage etc.
