Israeli painter and sculptor. He is a multi-faceted artist whose works include sculpture, painting, sketching, graphics and stage design. In 2004 he was awarded the Israel Prize.

Tumarkin is famous for the memorial sculpture of the Holocaust in the central square of Tel Aviv (Rabin Square), and for some sculptures situated in the Negev.

Tumarkin is also a theoretician and stage designer. in 1961, he became a driving force behind the break from the charismatic monopoly of lyric abstraction. Tumarkin created assemblages of found objects, generally with violent Expressionist undertones and decidedly unlyrical color. His determination to "be different" influenced his younger Israeli colleagues. The furor generated around Tumarkin's works, such as the old pair of trousers stuck to one of his pictures, intensified the mystique surrounding him.
