Armand Pierre Fernandez; Armand Pierre Arman 
      French-born artist (b. Nov. 17, 1928, Nice, France—d. Oct. 22, 2005, New York, N.Y), was a founding member of the Nouveau Réalisme movement in 1960s Paris and a master of found-object sculptures, into which he incorporated everyday machine-made objects—ranging from buttons and spoons to automobiles and boxes filled with trash. Arman, who signed his work with his first name (the spelling originated from a printer's error in 1958), was educated in philosophy and mathematics, as well as art and architecture. He began painting as a child and went through periods of Surrealism and abstraction before beginning his work in found objects in the late 1950s. He mounted his first solo exhibitions in 1956. Arman represented France at international events, including Expo '67 in Montreal, and was the subject of retrospective exhibitions in Minneapolis, Minn. (1964), and Nice, France (2001). He acquired U.S. citizenship in 1973 but also retained his French citizenship.
