Nahum Tevet

Nahum Tevet (1946, IL) was the most extreme of the Israeli Minimalists in the mid-1970s. He sees

creativity as a process based on a system of abstentions and reductions; the aim of the creative

process being to impart the essence of the plastic medium. However, at least two qualities in his

work break the rules of Minimalism: the lyric quality of his color and line, and the frequent

resemblance of his works to real objects, likes tables or beds.


Lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel.
