French-born American artist Armand Fernandez (1928-2005), better-known as Arman, created a lot of works with his signature concept of "accumulation".

He piled up everyday objects to form sculptures or painted them in a repetitive way.

In 1967, Arman appeared in Renault's factories in an art collaboration with the French automotive company. He watched how workshops were operated and talked to designers. He was inspired to produce more than 100 works in following years, in which he accumulated components he had seen in the world of cars.
