I wonder if this sounds just as strange as its German translation does (at least to my ears). What exactly does it mean? "My whole life has been dedicated to art"?

It sounds a little strange to me, although "lifework" is an accepted noun (meaning the complete or principal work, labour or task of a person's lifetime). You can also say "Art is my life's work" which (only marginally) doesn't sound as odd as "lifework" to me. They both mean "I've dedicated my whole life to art" or the one you suggest.
