Anish Kapoor Art

Indian, b. 1954

Born in India, Anish Kapoor has lived in England since the 1970s. Beginning in 1973, he studied in London at the Hornsey College of Art before going on to the Chelsea School of Art. After spending some time in India in 1979, Kapoor gained recognition on the international scene during the early 1980s.

"The void is not silent. I have always thought of it more and more as a transitional space, an in-between space,” Kapoor has said.

Since the early 1980s, Kapoor has not only produced some of the most innovative work in contemporary sculpture but has also done much to re-establish certain original sculpture forms. Although he is influenced by his cultural origins, the artist continues to incorporate new ideas into his work.

Born out of spiritual reflection, Kapoor's pieces strive to give form to the vital and opposing forces, as in his series of “Shadow Prints” — full/empty, material/spiritual, light/darkness, visible/invisible, aware/unaware, male/female, land/sea. Through a visual vocabulary that incorporates color pigments in particular as well as glass fiber and stainless steel, the artist has developed an ambitious body of work in sculpture and installation that at times approaches design and architecture.

Often displayed in public spaces, Kapoor’s sculptures are striking for their apparent simplicity. Yet his work is hard to overlook and has a hold on its audiences.

Venice Biennale: XLIV Esposizione Internazionale D'arte (Hand signed by Kapoor)
By Anish Kapoor
Located in New York, NY
Anish Kapoor Venice Biennale: XLIV Esposizione Internazionale D'arte Biennale Di Venezia (Hand signed and inscribed by Anish Kapoor), 1990 HISTORIC signed poster published on the occasion of Kapoor representing Great Britain at the Venice Biennale Offset lithograph poster (Hand signed, inscribed to Nadine and dated 2016) Boldly signed, inscribed and dated by Anish Kapoor on the lower right front 33 × 23 inches Unframed Boldly signed and inscribed by Anish Kapoor on the lower right front for the present owner, Nadine, so provenance is direct. This offset lithograph poster was published on the occasion of Anish Kapoor's exhibition "XLIV Esposizione Internazionale D'Arte" at the Biennale Di Venezia from May 27 to September 30, 1990. Hand signed posters by Kapoor are quite elusive. The poster is two sided as it was published on the occasion of the artist's participation in the 1990 Venice Biennale (the verso has his lengthy biography), and it bears the original folds as issued. British-Indian sculptor Anish Kapoor was chosen to represent Britain at the first Biennale of the 1990s. He had been exhibiting since 1980 but it was this show that brought him widespread recognition on the international stage. Sixteen huge sandstone blocks dominated the Pavilion’s main room; they were so heavy that the floor had to be reinforced with supports. Kapoor had started working in stone in the late 1980s and each block in Void Field (1989) has a hole filled with another motif in his work, the powdered blue pigment used in Indian religious ceremonies. The same vibrant tones, which was also inspired also by Yves Klein’s statement bold blue colour, were used in his low-lying slate sculpture, A Wing at the Heart of Things (1990), in the back gallery of the Pavilion; this work is now part of Tate’s collection. “Venice is an interchange of East and West, reflecting the way Kapoor borrows from both cultures” said Henry Meyric Hughes, British Council. Kapoor’s exhibition also wove together references to spiritualism and eroticism, with the red slit in the Pavilion's wall, entitled The Healing of St. Thomas (1989), alluding to the saint that doubted Jesus’ resurrection...
