Winner of the prestigious Turner Prize in 1991, Anish Kapoor (Bombay, 1954) is an internationally renowned artist, and a major figure of a British movement that contributed to a profound renewal of contemporary sculpture worldwide. His works range from intimate to monumental.

At first, Anish Kapoor used mainly natural materials such as stone or pigments, before switching to complex industrial manufacturing processes. Kapoor uses the optical effects created by either the reflection or the absorption of light. 

At the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, a stunning spherical work stands at the centre of the Bernheim Room, seemingly as a response to another concave piece. Each work is uniquely striking, a testimony of the vast repertoire of forms and materials from which Anish Kapoor tirelessly draws.
