As a freshly enrolled member of the New Realist Group, she showed her first "shooting paintings" in Paris in 1961. Her work was included in the "Art of Assemblage" Show at the Moma New York, the same year.

 

Niki de Saint Phalle is born in 1930 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, and she died in 2002 in California.

 

Over the last three decades, Niki de Saint Phalle has made her mark with at least three distinctive groups of work. The first are her relief-assemblages of the Sixties, glutted with "found" objects and arbitrarily splattered with paint. The second are three-dimensional figurative sculptures - the plump, sexy females that she calls Nanas (French slang for "Dames"), which she has been making since the mid-Sixties. Recently, the Grand Palais in Paris and the Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao presented a retrospective of her works.
