ARMAN WHAT IS FOUNDING YOU?

 

For sure, now we know: the REPETITION, SEEN-TAKEN the object and we start again.

 

Because "- Thousand spoons are more spoon than a single spoon. "

 

Yes, he makes the multiple in multiples; but do not get it wrong and go back to the basis, to not risk losing Arman on the way: his legendary way, Arman, is to ACCUMULATE.

 

The luck of this diary, that he decided to put words, mirroring today when he is no longer here to explain, is that he begins with the idea of writing and drawing for himself. Later, celebrity and getting old will incite him to choose to skim it, like for milk, to make it more digestible. Here, in his early writing, he is not confiding for posterity where all things are not necessarily good to be heard. Here, when one is heading slowly towards the new decade, the last one as he enters his twilight of life.
