Turner Prize winner Anish Kapoor creates elegant works of art that immerse the viewer in new ways. As a sculptor specialising in installation art and conceptual art, he first rose to prominence in the 1980s with biomorphic sculptures in limestone and other natural materials. Throughout his practice, Kapoor has explored the theme of ‘the void’ in sculptural works that are rich in pigment, reflective, and often playing with our perception and sense of space. His exploration of space is about the excavation of meaning – psychological, mythological or spiritual – beyond purely formal or material concerns. For Kapoor, repetition fulfils a meditative role; an idea is part of a continuum, with each new creation part of a whole that traverses across a variety of mediums.

The Artist

Anish Kapoor

Anish Kapoor moved to the UK in the 1970s to study art. Born in Bombay to a Jewish mother and Hindu father, Kapoor decided to become an artist while studying to be an engineer in Israel. He left for the UK in 1973 to attend the Hornsey College of Art, followed by a time at the Chelsea School of Art and Design. He’s lived and worked in London ever since. Kapoor’s works often cross the boundaries between art and architecture. His free-standing sculptures and installations are often large pieces, displayed in public places. These include ‘Taratantata’, which is on show at the Baltic Flour Mills in Gateshead in northern England. The work is 35 metres high and created out of polished stainless steel. Another of his steel constructions is ‘Marsyas’, a 3,400 square feet piece on display at the Tate Modern on London’s south bank. It is three steel rings combined by PVC membrane.
