Niki de Saint-Phalle

Fødselsår: 
1930
Dødsår: 
2002
Nationalitet: 
French-American

In the early 1960s the French-American artist Niki de Saint-Phalle (1930-2002) joined the Nouveaux Réalistes (Neo-Realists) artist group, and was also associated with Fluxus artists, such as Arthur Køpcke. During this period her works included her characteristic "Shooting Paintings", in which, as the title suggests, she attached small bags of paint to assemblages and sculptures and shot at them, in this expressive way thus layering her works with colour. Over the years Saint-Phalle created a series of highly colourful female sculptures in polyester, the so-called "Nana" sculptures, one of which (Nana Balloon) is part of KUNSTEN's collection.
