Arman

Arman is a French-American artist born in Nice in 1928 and died in New York in 2005. Renowned for his “accumulations”, he was one of the first to directly use, as pictorial material, manufactured objects, extensions of the hand that he saw as those of the human being, with continuous growth and multiplication. In 1960, under the leadership of art critic Pierre Restany, Arman became, with Yves Klein, one of the founding members of the Nouveaux Réalistes group alongside François Dufrêne, Raymond Hains, Martial Raysse, Daniel Spoerri, Jean Tinguely and Jacques Villeglé, later joined by César, Mimmo Rotella, Niki de Saint-Phalle, Gérard Deschamps and, in 1963, Christo.
