Anish KapoorPage 1/1

Born 1954
Anish Kapoor was born in Bombay, India but lives and works in London. He studied at Hornsey College of art and then at the Chelsea School of Art for his post-graduate studies.
Kapoor's first solo exhibition was held at Patrice Alexandre, Paris in 1980. His international reputation was quickly established, with a string of solo shows being held annually in countries around the world. He represented Britain, along with Stephen Farthing and Bill Woodrow, in the Paris Biennale in 1982 and again in 1990 at the Venice Biennale, for which he was awarded Premio Duemila. The following year he won the Turner Prize Award. Kapoor's work has also been included in many key international group exhibitions since 1974.

He is best known for his large public sculptures, but is also a very skilled printmaker, usually favouring etching for it's tactile quality.
