Anish Kapoor, the Indian contemporary artist you must know

 

Anish Kapoor is a British artist born in Bombay, India, in 1945. He has lived and worked in London since moving to this city to study art in the early 1970s, first at Hornsey College of Art and later in the Chelsea School of Art Design.

 

 

Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors of the time. He creates abstract sculptures with different materials such as concrete, fiberglass, pigments, stone, felt and stainless steel. He makes primitive organic shapes focusing on three axes: the object itself, its colour and its relationship with the audience. All the pieces outstand for their color, which may seem to be the influence of his Indian roots. But his origin has nothing to do with his work: “I do not believe in the idea of ethnic origin (…). For me, being a Spanish, English or English artist is the same. The important thing is the work». What he considers really important are the symbolic and formal qualities of his work. But the truth is that he has not been able to disassociate himself from the bright colors of his native land…

 

 

 

 

Anish Kapoor goes from the stone to the wax and from this to the most purely polished steel, creating works of any size imaginable and going beyond any barrier that we can imagine.

 

 

 

 

His forms question our understanding of space and often combine several concepts into one: the exterior, the interior; the additive volume and the subtractive volume. This dichotomy of opposites is what characterizes Kapoor’s work.
