Niki de Saint Phalle was a self-taught female artist who is best known for her works in monumental sculpture, painting, and filmmaking. Perhaps one of her most known works is her serie of sculptures called the Nanas, a collection of whimsical and colorful large-scale sculptures of colorful, round and extravagant female figures. Another one of her famous projects was the Tarot Garden, a large sculpture garden located in Tuscany containing creative pieces some as large as houses. Saint Phalle used mosaic and fiberglass as well as bold colored paints to create her sculptured works. This French artist has been highly acclaimed by critics all around the world for creating art that is moving, exuberant, and bold.
