Anish Kapoor


b. Bombay, India 1954

Famous for public sculptures that are both adventures in form and feats of engineering, Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors worldwide. Kapoor creates elegant sculptures that combine simple materials, geometric shape, and organic form. After first establishing his reputation in the 1980s with biomorphic sculptures in limestone and other natural materials, Kapoor began to explore the theme of “the void” in large-scale stone works, some with defined insides and outsides and others that clearly delineate empty spaces. Living and working in London since the 1970s, the artist represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1990, receiving the Turner Prize in 1991. His work can be found in numerous collections around the world, such as the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, the De Pont Foundation in Tillburgh, the Museo National Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid and the Tate Collection in London.
