AIDA Art Galleries on the High Seas

"Exclusive Art Cruises" with David Tollmann, Charles Fazzino, Ed Heck and Devin Miles 

The art galleries on board of the AIDA ships offer a multi-faceted programme with over 1,000 pieces of art by established artists from renowned German art academies, international contemporary artists and promising newcomers. 

David Tollmann, Charles Fazzino, Ed Heck and Devin Miles: these artists are live on board again this year and will be exhibiting their interesting and varied works on the AIDA ships. With the "Exclusive Art Cruises", AIDA Cruises offers the opportunity to enjoy the beauty and diversity of art at sea and discover the world at the same time. The artists show a wide range of styles and techniques and present their diverse works. Enthusiasts and collectors get the chance to experience the artists up close and to purchase their works with a personal dedication. 

David Tollmann's works captivate with their distinctiveness, expressiveness, strength and colourfulness. Radiant luminosity and abstract formal language stand for his art. Guests on the Mediterranean cruise with AIDAcosma from 14 to 21 October 2023 can get to know David Tollmann and his works of art. 

Charles Fazzino is a trendy pop artist from New York City who is known for his colourful and glittering 3D constructions. His works can be found in the private collections of celebrities such as Bill and Hillary Clinton and George Bush. For many years, the artist has themed public events such as the Olympics or the American Super Bowl, and on 31 December 2022, he designed the illuminated facade of Nasdaq in New York's Times Square.  Charles Fazzino and his artworks can be admired and purchased on the voyage through the Orient with AIDAcosma from April 7 to 14, 2023. Another opportunity to experience him and his works is on the voyage "Mediterranean Treasures from Mallorca" with AIDAcosma from October 7 to 14, 2023. 

Vibrantly painted figures with strong colours and striking outlines are typical of the American artist Ed Heck. A portion of charm, irony and everyday comedy can be discovered in each of the works. Singing, Swinging, Rocking Pop Art by Ed Heck has become a trademark for many years, not only in the USA but also in Germany and Europe. Under the motto "The World of Ed Heck", he develops his art from his passion for music and for wildlife. Ed Heck will be cruising the Orient aboard AIDAcosma from February 3 to 10, 2023 and will also be travelling with guests through the Mediterranean from September 30 to October 7, 2023.  

Icons of film and contemporary history of the 50s and 60s determine the motifs of Devin Miles, the pioneer of the new Modern Pop Art in Germany. In his works, the beauties of the glittering world such as Marylin Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Romy Schneider, heroes such as James Dean or Sean Connery and symbols of this time of global awakening merge into unique collages. Political events and historical references also flow into his work. In this way, Devin Miles builds an artistic bridge from the past to the present. On the Mediterranean cruise with AIDAcosma from August 18 to 25, 2023, you can admire Devin Miles' works on board.
