Anish Kapoor (born 1954 in Bombay) has lived and worked in London for over thirty years. His work combines the spiritual traditions of his native country and the notion of the sublime from the Western art tradition. Since his first sculptures - simple forms covered with color pigments, arranged on the floor - Kapoor has developed a multi-faceted body of works using stone, steel or glass. In his objects and forms, the line between painting and sculpture becomes blurred. In the creation of three-dimensional bodies, his way of working is typical of the sculptor, but his themes - emptiness, absence, transformation and immateriality - derive from painting. Kapoor´s intention is to create sculptures that not only deal with questions of form but also address the themes of belief, passion or experiences beyond material concerns.
