Anish Kapoor, born in 1954 in Banswara, India is a London based sculptor and Royal Academician. His pieces are characterized by simple curved forms that evoke mystery through their large size, dark cavities, and monochromatic bright colors. His sculptures often have reflective facades that invite touch and a second glance. Kapoor frequently covers his pieces with powder pigment that he allows to dust the floor surrounding the objects made of solid quarried stone. Kapoor’s sculptures play with themes of duality including earth/sky, matter/spirit, lightness/darkness and male/female. Anish Kapoor has rocked the art world with his abstract sculptures that dissect form, shape and space simultaneously. One of Kapoor’s sculptures entitled “Cloud Gate” is a 110-ton silver structure that resides in Millennium Park in Chicago, Illinois. His mid-career retrospective was featured at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston in 2008 and he has a forthcoming exhibition "Memory" at the Guggenheim, New York, in October 2009.
