Besides his art practices, Levy is known for his furniture and light designs, and hi–tech clothing lines and accessories.

Levy recently unveiled a large-scale sculpture at the new campus of Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) in BangaloreIndia. He created his iconic ‘Rock pieces’, made in Corten steel using a special process to treat the surface and the rusted look.
