Others included painters Devin Miles, Malte Brekenfeld and Rando Geschewski and caricaturist Peter Bauer.‘From the very beginning AIDA Cruises had a mission to give high priority to art on board. Today the works of many known artists enthuse some 800,000 guests each year who spend their vacation on our ships,’ explains Michael Ungerer, president of AIDA Cruises.
The German cruise line set an artistic note right at the start, when the first AIDA ship went into service in 1996. Rostock painter Büttner gave AIDA ships a face with two glistening eyes and kiss-pursed lips on the bow.
The fixed inventory of exhibits on-board AIDA’s fleet of ten ships comprises up to 2,000 works of art per ship from 45 different artists valued from €120 up to €200,000 ranging across all genres of contemporary art including paintings, drawings, printed graphics, sculpture and hand-made designer jewelry.
