One of Britain's most celebrated artists, Anish Kapoor spent his childhood in India but came of age in London, where he moved to study art. An international art star, Kapoor's work mainly consists of simple geometric forms that are monochromatic and reflective. Employing pigment, quarried stone, and stainless steel, Kapoor's work blurs the boundaries between architecture and sculpture. Famous for his major city installations, his most notable pieces include Cloud Gate (best known as "The Bean") in Millennium Park, Chicago and Sky Mirror, a temporary public project at Rockefeller Center, New York. Both a Turner Prize Winner and a Commander of the British Empire, Kapoor represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1990.
