I would definitely say Giger. Also look at the surrealist artists like Dali and Magritte. Also have a look at Hieronymous Bosch. Heres one of his works: Hell http://www.artchive.com/artchive/b/bosch/delightr.jpg

Ivan Albright.

If you have a chance, go to the Art Institute of Chicago and see his work. He was a medical illustrator during the first World War and apparently saw some things he could not let go, which stuck with his work. He used combinations of very dark and very bright colors and when you see his paintings up close there is an almost psychotic attention to detail in them. You look at his paintings and get a feeling he was really disturbed by something and vented it with a paint brush. You can find pictures of his work online, but looking at even high res photos does them zero justice. The first time I saw his work was like 20 years ago and it made a huge impression on me. He clearly wasn't doing this work for anyone but himself, and you get the impression that he really needed to do it. His subject matter isn't gory, or shocking or full of meaningless symbolism, just disturbing when you try to envision the mindset of a person who paints the way he did.
