The sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor (born 1954 in Mumbai) has lived and worked in London since 1973. He studied at the Hornsey College of Art and at the Chelsea School of Art and Design. The artist already became widely known in the 70s when he started creating sculptures with pigments. During the 80s he focused on biomorphic forms and continued experimenting with the viewer’s spatial experience. To this day monumental sculptures, site-specific interventions or unusual materials such as coloured vaseline and wax are characteristic of his work. Kapoor addresses and explores metaphysical contrarieties like presence and absence, existence and inexistence and engages not only with the physical but also with the psychological perceptions of space. Furthermore, in 2015 Kapoor acquired the exclusive rights to the pigment Vantablack, the blackest black in the artworld.
