In Loving Memory of
 JUERGEN ALDAG

Juergen Aldag was a true artist from the age of seven years old when he exceeded expectations on an art homework assignment and was instantly put in the spotlight at his elementary school as a child prodigy by the principal, his teacher and classmates. The giftedness of prodigies is determined by the degree of their talent relative to their ages and Juergen certainly fell into that category as a child.  He was born and raised in Hamburg, Germany, excelled as an artist from childhood and worked his entire adult life as a professional artist in Europe, America and Asia.

“The giftedness of prodigies is
determined by the degree of their
talent relative to their ages and
Juergen certainly fell into that
category as a child.”

During his lifetime he never even so much as “dabbled” in any job that wasn’t related to art. He worked tirelessly day and night mastering his signature artistry which was creating a new and inventing ‘scientific’ art technique, until he passed away from esophagus cancer on January 19, 2006 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the age of fifty (after surviving testicular cancer in 1988).

“He worked tirelessly day
and night mastering
his signature artistry
which was creating a new
and inventing ‘scientific’
art technique...”

Some doctor’s suggested that the amount of silk screen and other paints that he nasally ingested and breathed in over the years of painting in insufficiently ventilated environments may have greatly contributed to his illness and death.
     Although Juergen was well known in Europe as an ambitious abstract artist who was friends with the Scorpions and was the chief commercial silk screen color running specialist in Germany, he became a world renowned artist after taking America by storm in 1988 when he was commissioned by the world famous German “Masters of the Impossible” illusionists Siegfried & Roy in Las Vegas. They asked him to paint their celebrity Royal White Tiger co-stars after a private showing of his artwork at the Marriot Hotel in Times Square in New York City. Shortly thereafter in 1989, The MGM Mirage Resort gift stores in Las Vegas were stocked with Aldag’s Siegfried & Roy White Tiger art posters, coffee cups and other souvenirs which launched his international artist career and worldwide fame.

     After moving to America from his homeland Germany in 1994 to live with his American wife Wendy Arvella and to pursue his art career in Las Vegas, Juergen’s artwork attracted a lot of attention as numerous art critics and enthusiasts recognized him as a genius and one of the greatest artists of our time. Artists and collectors alike were awestruck and fascinated with his signature art style using bold, vibrant colors on multi-dimensional canvasses that he had created. When relocating to Hawaii in 1995, his original artwork sold out and flew off the walls of the sixteen Wyland Galleries on all islands in Hawaii, in Las Vegas and in Florida, where his work was being sold exclusively from 1995-2001 to Americans, but primarily to the Japanese, Chinese and other overseas tourists.
     In 2002 just after he moved his art studio back to Las Vegas from Hawaii, Juergen signed an extensive, multi-level, multi-million dollar contract with his friends Siegfried & Roy to create an exclusive art collection for their home as well as for worldwide commercial sales. This rare and spectacular art collection is one of the most unique and valuable in the art world today as most of these paintings were created with genuine diamonds and 14 karat gold leafing, signed by Aldag and Siegfried & Roy, gallery priced upwards to $100,000.00.

     Over the years, Juergen Aldag and his wife Wendy Arvella have generously donated his artwork to many charitable non-profit organizations including; The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Camp Baywatch, The Guggenheim Museum, The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Las Vegas Family Services / Child Haven, Safe Nest and many others in art auction fundraisers sponsored by Wendy’s art magazines; “Art Newseum Las Vegas” and “Hawaii Art News & Directory”.
     Along with his friendship and connection to his celebrity art subjects and collectors, Juergen Aldag had also become a celebrity in his own right in the international art world and was dubbed, “The Celebrity Artist”. His extensive celebrity art collections and collectors include the Beatles; Paul McCartney and John Lennon, Cher, the Scorpions and Siegfried & Roy, along with countless other superstars. In addition, his art is also appreciated and collected by an impressive list of high profile politicians including; President Obama, President George W. Bush, former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and former California Governor/actor Arnold Schwarzenegger as well as museums including; The Guggenheim and the J. Paul Getty, and major corporations such as; Island Heritage Publishing, BMW, Indian Motorcycles and Polygram Records, just to name a few.

     Although Juergen Aldag has physically passed away, his masterpieces are still very much alive and thriving. His legacy and artwork have continually appreciated over the years as did former great contemporary artists after their deaths such as; Van Gogh, Picasso and others of that era. He was as colorful and energetic as his artwork. Juergen was a very unique, eccentric character and was relentless when it came to painting and having fun doing it. He packed 200 years into 50 years of living and created thousands of original paintings in his lifetime; all the while winning from almost everyone he met their heartfelt adoration. To know him , was to love him. This website cannot possibly capture every wonderful, memorable moment of his life, or every canvass that he transformed into a masterpiece, but herein is a glimpse of a genius; his heart, his art and his life.
