Arman Biography

Franco-American artist Arman was born in Nice in 1928 and died in New York in 2005. A founder and leading figure of the Nouveau Réalisme movement, he created a new aesthetic based on the object. A painter and sculptor known for his ‘accumulations’, he made direct use of manufactured objects. His work questions consumer society and the loss of the object’s identity, centring on two imperatives: the need to keep objects, and the need to destroy them.
