Anish Kapoor is a British sculpture who came to prominence in the 1980's. This is a collection of his drawings which previously have rarely been exhibited. Kapoor considers his works on paper as independent works of art rather than studies for sculpture. His drawings have themes in common with his three dimensional work but his approach to making them is entirely different

"Anish Kapoor is one of the most important artists of his generation. Born in Bombay and living in London since the early 1970s, he has exhibited worldwide and has works in many important public collections including the Tate Gallery, London and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The artist uses different media to explore his vision including stone, metal, marble, pigment and fibreglass. Yet these materials are magically fashioned, polished and coloured into non-objects which invoke the sublime, a condition of emptiness and darkness. Kapoor represented Britain at the Venice Blennale in 1990, where he won the prestigious Premio Duemila and in 1991 was awarded the Turner Prize."--Jacket

Anish Kapoor : svayambh by Rainer Crone( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a distinguished career spanning thirty years, Anish Kapoor has created an ambitious vocabulary of form manifested in sculptural installation and site-specific works. Using materials as wide-ranging as stone, steel, raw pigment, wax and resin, Kapoor confronts his viewer with both the depths of imagined space and the play of surface illusion. This volume surveys the totality of Kapoor's work, with specific focus on his recent installation Svayambh ('self-creation' in Sanskrit), in which a huge block of red wax travels slowly through the museum space, leaving traces of its passage on walls and doorways. The authors provide in-depth analyses of many of Kapoor's major works, placing them in historical and philosophical context, and offering new insights both into Kapoor's work and the wider context of contemporary sculpture."--Jacket

Anish Kapoor's sculptures represent an important position in contemporary art. Born in Bombay in 1954 and living in London since the early 1970s, he combines Western and Eastern influences to create special work. He became famous with large-scale sculptures in public spaces, most recently on the occasion of the Olympic games in London in 2012. His multi awardwinning work (1991 Turner prize) has been exhibited worldwide since his first solo exhibition in 1980. The monograph gives a concentrated overview of his diverse oeuvre of the last 40 years, from the pigment works to the mirror works and large polished sculptures. In the main section, the temporary, site-related works in the Martin-Gropius-Bau, such as the " ..." in the spectacular, central hall, are documented in sketches, models and installation photos. These new works, which impressively frame the architecture of the Martin-Gropius-Bau, are elaborately illustrated and elucidated
