Sir Anish Kapoor, CBE, RA

Sir Anish Kapoor has been exhibiting since the early ’80s and won the 1991 Turner Prize. Kapoor’s work combines elements of Eastern and Western cultures, making sculptures with both natural and man-made materials.

Kapoor’s large-scale sculptures, made of steel, granite, concrete, PVC and resin, have appeared around the world, from Paris to New York and from London to Tel Aviv.

Orbit, the tallest sculpture in the United Kingdom, was selected as the winning artwork for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Kapoor was the first living British artist to take over the Royal Academy in 2009 and has received a knighthood in 2013 for his services to art.
