  • About the Artist

Arman, stage name of Armand Pierre Fernandez, was a French painter and sculptor, founder and major exponent of the artistic current Nouveau Realisme.

He was born in Nice in 1928, where he first attended the school of Decorative Art and then the Louvre art school in Paris. After the early fifties, the artist completely detaches himself from traditional painting and begins to produce the famous stamps, obsessively replicated on paper, then moving on to traces and imprints (Allures).

His new search for expression culminates in the 60s when he begins to focus on industrial and urban objects, breaking them, dissecting and assembling them giving them a new life re-contextualized. He calls himself "a painter who makes sculpture," as his works have no clear boundaries and can be considered both painting and sculpture.

Nouveau Realisme focuses on marginal and unused objects of society, Arman in fact will often use scraps and waste in its production that will enhance through the colors.

Arman died in New York in 2005 and was buried in Paris.
