Anish Kapoor (b.1954) is one of the world?s most prominent artists, as the creator of popular public sculptures around the globe ? including Cloud Gate (2004, Millennium Park, Chicago), Mirror (2006, Rockefeller Center, New York) and Tarantara (1999-2000, Gateshead and Naples) ? and the recipient of numerous international awards, including the Turner Prize (1991). This is the most extensive monograph ever published on the artist, covering more than 30 years of work and illustrated with hundreds of full-color images of sketches and technical diagrams from his most ambitious projects. In a range of materials, from the traditional (alabaster, sandstone) to the high tech (polished steel, PVC), Kapoor?s unique vocabulary of natural shapes and abstract forms has changed the course of contemporary sculpture. Anish Kapoor includes an extensive chronology covering the artist?s life in detail and is illustrated with snapshots, sketches and ephemera, some never published until now.
