ARMAN (Armand Pierre Fernandez) uses different art forms to create his artworks, from painting and printing to his famous “accumulations” developed from 1959 to 1962. In “accumulations”, normal objects are taken identicals and “accumulated” inside transparent containers, becoming main subject of the artwork. The artist finds, accumulates, destroys and paints every object, giving them a new life through art. His purpose is to make the audience reflect on these objects, on the use and primary purpose of their "previous life".
In this artwork the subject is the tee, a stand used to support a stationary ball, particularly golf ball, so that the player can strike it.

Armand Pierre Fernandez was born in Nice in 1928.
He is known as Arman, the name he has been using to sign his artworks since 1958.
One of the most prolific artists in the second half of the 20th century, Arman has produced the most different kind of artworks, ranging from paintings to prints, from sculptures in bronze to his famous “accumulations”.
Art has always been a fundamental aspect of his life, mostly thanks to the influence of his father, an antique dealer who loved every form of art (especially music). This ongoing passion within his family led Arman to the decision to sign up at École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Nice and then at École du Louvre in Paris.
After a beginning that can be called "traditionalist" in the world of painting, he stared to dedicate himself to the creation of the famous ”Cachets” and “Allures”:
The firsts are a series of works on paper made with the use of the stamp, while “Allures” are made thanks to a similar technique where, instead of the stamp, he used fingerprints, traces of colour left by brushes and to various objects.
What binds all his works are the objects, absolute protagonists of his art. In his first works, they serve as the medium, which leave a mark on the support.
Around the first half of the 60’s, Arman style started to evolve: he became an exponent of the Nouveau Réalisme, and from this moment on the object is no longer a medium, but becomes the artwork itself, as well as in the Dada period, even though a conceptual gap can be noticed: the objects are not just displayed as irreverent symbol of artistic tradition; they are subjected to an invasive and destructive action, symbolizing the same destruction that society leads against the values and visions of the contemporary human being.

if you LIVE IN EU
If you live in Europe (CEE) the price we show you already includes taxes. The works are taxed either with VAT exposed (22%) or VAT with the margin, if you are a private person you do not change anything, if you are a company: in In the first case, you will recover the VAT, in the second, no. When you put the works in the cart you will be separated from the vat exposed.
If you DON'T LIVE IN EU and you want an EXTRA EU shipping
Many works (not all) have an exposed VAT of 22% included in the price, this vat will be spun off! Obviously you will pay the VAT to your destination country, if due. For example if you live in Switzerland you save 22% but you will have to pay 7.7% to your customs, if you live in Hong Kong you will save 22% and you will not have to pay anything to your customs (lucky you).
