Arman attended the School of Arts in Nizza and the École du Louvre, École National des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. His object art paintings were exhibited in many European cities.
Very early Arman made friends with Yves Klein. At that time he began to soak in ink and then press to paper different objects, like chains, cans, keys and so on. In this way he attracted attention to the separate readymade objects. So trash bins or paper boxes became used in clothing industry. They were followed by piling similar things, like radios, wheels or ampoules in boxes or Perspex. Arman operated with the given material like an artist operates with paints and a brush. He left an immense space to incorporating chance effects in his works.
The specific character of Arman’s work lies in his ability to mix the objects and portraits from the world of music and technical sphere. He possess the virtuous ability to make music visible.
In 1964 Arman got the second Biennale price in Tokio and in 1966 the biggest Marzotto price. In 1968 he got a teaching position in the Californian University. The same year his works were presented in Biennale in Venice and in Kassel. You can find his famous paintings and statues in all art metropolises.
