Anish Kapoor (b. 1954) is a British-Indian sculptor known for his richly colored, large-scale abstract site-specific works that combine Modernist sense of pure materiality with the exploration of form and the perception of space. Born in Bombay, he moved to London in the 1970s to study at the Chelsea College of Art. Throughout his career, he has worked on a variety of scales and with diverse materials, including mirrors, stone, wax, and PVC. His work explores both biomorphic and geometric forms and negative space. He has been the recipient of numerous distinctions, including the Turner Prize, Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, and Knighthood in 2013 for services to the visual arts.
