Armand Pierre ARMAN


Arman or Armand Fernandez was born on November 17, 1928 in Nice. 

He was the only child of an antique dealer of Spanish origin. Very early, he showed a disposition for drawing and painting.

He studied at L'Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Nice (now the Villa Arson), then at L'Ecole du Louvre.  He met Yves Klein and Claude Pascal at the judo school they attended in Nice in 1947.

At the end of 1957, Arman, who signed his works with his first name in homage to Van Gogh, decided to abandon Armand's "d" and made his signature official in 1958, on the occasion of an exhibition at Iris Clert.

In 1960, Arman became, with Yves Klein, one of the founding members of the Nouveaux Réalistes group.

From 1961, Arman developed his career in New York, where he lived and worked half of his time, alternating with his life in Nice until 1967, then in Vence until his death.

Arman had 6 children from 3 different mothers, including Yves Arman (1964-1989), collector and art dealer, specialist of Marcel Duchamp and friend of Keith Haring.

All his life, Arman was also a passionate collector of everyday objects (watches, weapons, pens...) and works of art, in particular traditional African art of which he was a connoisseur, an appreciated and recognized specialist.

He died in New York on 22 October 2005.
