(*) Armando was born in Amsterdam in 1929. In his childhood he moved to Amersfoort. There he saw, during the German occupation of the Netherlands, where the Nazis established a "transition camp" for prisoners who were to be sent to concentration camps. The suffering of the victims and the cruelty of the Nazi camp guards, so close to his home, influenced him for the rest of his life. After liberation (1945), he studied art history at the University of Amsterdam.
His first solo exhibition was at the Galerie Le Canard, Amsterdam, in 1954. At this time he also began writing poetry. His work is influenced by the art group CoBrA. He also made abstract drawings, with his left hand, in the dark. Similarly in his references are Jean Dubuffet and Jean Fautrier, producing thickly pasted paintings.
In 1958 he was one of the founding members of the Nederlandse Informele Groep (Informelen), with painters Kees van Bohemen, Jan Henderiks, Henk Peeters, Jan Schoonhoven and others.
In 1959 he joined the Situationist International (SI) and attended its Third Conference, held in Munich in 1959. With Anton Alberts, Constant and Har Oudejans he wrote the First Proclamation of the Dutch Section of the SI. However, he was expelled from the SI in the spring of 1960, although he continued to contribute to other situationist publications such as the Situationist Times. He also contributed to Podium, Gard Sivik, De Nieuwe Stijl and Barbarber.
He lived partly in Amsterdam, partly in Amersfoort and until 1989 also in Berlin.
