    when i opened this thread, i immediately hit 'stop', so i wouldnt have to wait for the annoying ass pictures to load and i could move straight into discussing how fucking wack i think this shit is. i'll give the guy credit for having his own style and for doing it well (technically speaking), outside of that though, i cant fucking stand it, the people that like stuff like this are the same ones that think nas beat jay z and that gays shouldnt be able to marry. fucking moooooor-ons.

    seriously i have two words for anyone that likes bullshit like this: "eyebrow piercing".

    seeks/thank you, goodnight.

    i whole heartedly agree (and always have).
    ;)

    i know im being stereotypical, but i have never met a single person that really liked giger, that has any clue as to what 'quality' or 'interesting' art looks like. this shit is like 3d pieces. people can appreciate the technical aspect so they confuse that with genuine worth.
    this shit is just annoying, you like shitty 'art'...sorry dog.
    :(

    Nah, see that's the thing. I didnt state that i was a fan of GIGER, i just put up the thread.. in fact im indifferent to quite a few of the "artist's" who's thread's ive put up I.E. Sam Flore's and Dave Kinsey. I was just repsonding to your statement about all of his fan's being opposed to gay marriage etc. Seemed like you jumped the gun there. As far as the art that i like being any good, thats not really anything i worry about, im not spending money to support the people who i start thread's for - just putting up one more thing for people to look at if they choose to.

    Oh, and im not big on 3d pieces either, bit pretentious - i prefer paint rollers.

    *Im apologizing ahead of time for spelling errors.

    Im a fan of his, i like his viewpoint on things and yes the technical aspect of his work is great. when he first started painting with the style he's best known for there was nobody out there doing anything like it, it's the transcending aspect of art in a sense, for example , his canvas's some of them are shitty, ill agree with that, the subject matter is lame, but then again there's the way he did it, there's the way he made it come up that gives you another insight into what you are capable of with a brush.

    Plus he created Alien, come on.
     
  13. He's been a HUGE influence on me, and still amazes me technically, but I've moved on thematically. Dude is a much better concept artist/stylist than he is a fine art painter.

    i like his more abstract peices.
    i think the guy has a lot of really interesting concepts going on in the work.
    (as mams said)
    the juxtaposition of sex and violence in a non-gory way makes the stuff really erotic i think.
    and the fact that the figures in the paintings are kind of enslaved without being degraded.
    also the whole purity v pornography.
    the subject matter is tough to pull off,
    and i think as a painter he's managed to thrust it (ha) into the crux of the work without being cheesy.

    the endless imitation of geiger when movies are cooming up with new aliens and monsters has gotten stale.
