Kapoor is known for sculptural installations that create an environment in which the viewer's body and mind are transformed by the subtle power of color, shape, and light. His portfolio 15 etchings, which contains the work illustrated here, provides a similar sensorial experience, with its sensual surfaces and rainbow of deep hues. Kapoor works with a minimalist vocabulary of clean lines and forms, even though the resulting installations are generally massive in size. Born in Bombay, Kapoor has lived in London since the 1970s. In 1991, he won the prestigious Turner Prize, the top award in England given to visual artists.
