Israeli sculptor Nahum Tevet is best known for his ties to global conceptualism and minimalism during the 1960s and 1970s. At the time, his work stood out because of his use of color and the sculptures' resemblance to functional objects like tables and shelves. In the 1980s, his work became more complex and started to resemble urban-modernist landscapes. He is now known for his sculptural and architectural installations that are made of plastic, metal, and wood. 

Nahum Tevet’s work has been exhibited in group and solo shows internationally, including Muzeum Sztuki Lodz, Poland, Loushy Art & Projects, Tel Aviv, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv, Brooklyn Museum, and Los Angeles County Museum. His work has been featured in many international biennials, including the Venice Biennale, Carnegie International, and The 22nd Biennial of São Paulo.
