ANISH KAPOOR

1954, Bombay, India // Lives and works in London, United Kingdom

One of the most influential artists of the 1990's, Anish Kapoor is known for his grand themes such as emptiness or decay, his use of deep colors such as dark blue and red (and most recently vantablack), but most and foremost the British Indian artist is known for the size of his sculptures, such as the one in the Tate Turbine Hall, or the Cloud Gate in Chicago.

Less well-known are his early etchings. In these works he has shown the themes mentioned before in this text but with much more subtlety; with fine, sharp lines, subdued colors and in graspable sizes, which in most cases maybe even capture the essence of his work even better, as they are, in a way, rid of the white noise of the grandeur of his later, much better known, work.
