"Years ago, I named my abstract art style, 'Defingismus' which is Latin for 'changing the form of reality,' because when I'm creating my artwork, its a 30 layer process that lifts me into a higher state of mind."

-Juergen Aldag



JUERGEN HANS BRUNO ALDAG was born in Hamburg, Germany on December 24, 1955. He was an
