Sir Anish Kapoor, an Indian-British sculptor, has a diverse background and mix of experiences. Born in Mumbai, he studied Electrical Engineering in Israel, before giving it up to pursue his artistic dreams to Britain. Kapoor is very well known for his biomorphic style of structuring his sculptures, using simple shapes and bright, monochromatic colours to maximum effect. It frequently finds itself at the centre of controversy, having been compared to a sculpture of female genitalia, and vandalised numerous times.

Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors of his generation. Perhaps most famous for public sculptures that are both adventures in form and feats of engineering, Kapoor manoeuvres between vastly different scales, across numerous series of work. Immense PVC skins, stretched or deflated; concave or convex mirrors whose reflections attract and swallow the viewer; recesses carved in stone and pigmented so as to disappear: these voids and protrusions summon up deep-felt metaphysical polarities of presence and absence, concealment and revelation.

One of the foremost artists of his generation, Anish Kapoor?s majestic, beguiling sculptures, awesome in their size and simple beauty, at once demand a physical response and suggest a metaphysical realm. With stunning photographs of signature works, including new pieces that have never been published, Anish Kapoor is the first major monograph of this internationally renowned and popular artist.Employing intense colors and refined surfaces, and working with contrasts between form and void, and light and darkness, Kapoor?s work evokes the mystical, and creates optical effects that challenge perceptual certainties. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, this richly illustrated book traces Kapoor?s artistic development over the course of a career spanning more than thirty years. Eminent scholars explore the philosophical issues pertinent to his work and examine its place in the history of modern sculpture and in the context of contemporary practice.
