Before he moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina during the early 1940s, he lived in Uruguay and Brazil. In 1946 Arden moved to Paris and returned to Argentina in 1955 for a total of one year, and in 1956 he moved indefinitely to Paris where he died.
He has been a poet, political writer, painter, sculptor and co-founder of the international artistic movement “Madí”.
Arden Quin’s personal style is full of contrasting colours and geometric patterns. Some of the main characteristic concepts in Quin’s work are the irregular shaped frames, his “formes galbées” these are an alternation of concave and convex forms mainly in woodwork, plastique blanche which is highly polished enameled wood pieces, and the coplanals, those are a series of polygons forming a single piece that in some cases include movable elements and sometimes remains static. [2] His first painting, “Naturel Morte Cubiste” or “Cubist Still Life” was created in 1934. At the age of 21, he met his mentor, the Uruguayan sculptor Joaquín Torres García who was directly influenced by Piet Mondrian and Michael Seufor. Following his mentor’s steps, Arden Quin started experimenting with different shapes and colours. In 1944 he created the literary and artistic journal, Arturo. In 1946, before moving to Paris, Quin in collaboration with other artist and friends Martín Blaszko, Rhod Rothfuss, and Gyula Kosice, launched the Madí movement. The movement’s main characteristics are: irregular frames, movable and displacing architecture, pan interval music composition and invented poetic propositions. Many painters, musicians, sculptors, writers, and poets have been members of this international artistic movement since the 1940s until today. In 1993, Arden Quin was included in the MOMA exhibit of “Latin American Artists of the Twentieth Century”. Several of Arden’s pieces can be found at the MADI Museum in Dallas, Texas.
