Art: Anish Kapoor

Anish Kapoor is a sculptor I knew nothing about. I generally don't know a lot about Sculptors. Born in Bombay, he moved to England in 1972 while 18. In 1990, he would represent Britain in the Venice Biennale, where he was awarded some big award.

"Anish Kapoor is renowned for his enigmatic sculptural forms that permeate physical and psychological space. Kapoor's inventiveness and versatility have resulted in works ranging from powdered pigment sculptures and site-specific interventions on wall or floor, to gigantic installations both in and outdoors. Throughout, he has explored what he sees as deep-rooted metaphysical polarities: presence and absence, being and non-being, place and non-place and the solid and the intangible." (Tate)
