At the Venice Biennale in 1990 Anish Kapoor (b.1954 in Mumbai, India) represented Great Britain, and today he is one of the most prominent artists working in British Sculpture. The many-sided work of the 1991 Turner Prize winner is highly regarded internationally, not least because he combines the spiritual traditions of India with the idea of the sublime from the Western tradition in art. Since his first sculptures using colour pigments Kapoor has always crossed the borders between the genres. His method of working is that of a sculptor, but the themes of his sculptures - emptiness, transformation, immateriality, faith or passion - go far beyond questions of form and derive from painting.
