Arman

​Arman was a French-born American artist born in Nice on November 17, 1928. He is best known for his “accumulations” of vast quantities of the same object illustrated in sculpture and for the destruction/recomposition of objects. An example is a collection of axes welded together called “Avalanch” at Tel Aviv University.

In the 1960s, after moving to New York City, he was associated with the movement Nouveau Realism, along with Yves Klein, Jean Tinguely, and later Christo.

His works have exhibited widely internationally and can be seen in the permanent collections of Washington D.C.’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and the Boca Raton Museum of Art. He died in New York City on October 22, 2005 at age 76.
