Arman was a French born citizen who later became an American citizen. He Studied at the Ecole Nationale des Art Decoratifs in Nice from 1946-1949 and then at the Parisian Ecole du Louvre. A printer's error on the cover of a catalogue reduced his name to 'Arman' and he worked under that name from then on. Along with Yves Klein with whom he collaborated at joint happenings, Arman is one of the best known exponents of New Realism. His basic technique has been the use of assemblage: smashed up everyday objects such as paint tubes, sliced-up violins embedded in plexiglas showcases to become precious art works.

Arman has had numerous exhibitions and examples of his work may be found in museums world-wide.
