Aigen was born in Olmütz on 8 October 1685, the son of a goldsmith. He was a pupil of the Olmütz painter Dominik Maier. He lived in Vienna from about 1720, where he was professor of painting at the Academy from 1751 until his death. His work consists of landscapes with figures, genre paintings and altarpieces. His style shows the influence of artists from France and the Low Countries.[1]

He died at Vienna on 21 October 1762.[1]
