Three artists, two of them local, have turned a Sacramento alley into a tribute to the late Swiss artist H.R. Giger, who was most known for designs of the sci-fi film classic “Alien.”
The aerosol-painted mural occupies a 30-foot wall at Jimmy’s Barber Garage in the J/K alley at 24th Street.
“It’s a little bit of his actual images and what he inspired in our work,” said Vyalone, a Los Angeles-based artist who teamed up with Sacramento artists Shawn Burner and Steven D. Williams.
Burner said he was excited to pay homage to an inspiring artist and to see more of Sacramento alleys being painted.
Giger died Monday at age 74.
