Born in 1928 - France
Arman is an artist, originally from Nice, a naturalized American citizen died in 2005. He's known for collecting objects and his ever-famous tantrums. He is part of the new realistic artist group, which was mainly founded by Cesar.
Initially, Arman studied at Ecole des Arts decoratifs in Nice where he met Yves Klein, the he went to Ecole du Louvre.
Arman is curious about the nature of an object compared to their link with modern societies, between sacralization and consumption. He "collects" objects according to quantitative logic which doesn't make them unique anymore, an image of profusion, underlining the fact that these items can be expired in the world where people are prone to consumption. Though, destruction is present in his works but under the form of anger and combustion. Th artist has portrayed hundreds of public areas in the cities around the globe, through the creation of imposing works.
