    He was also awarded a CBE in and a Knighthood in for services to visual arts and received an honorary doctorate from the University of Oxford in SinceCloud Gatealso known as "The Bean," a ton stainless steel sculpture with a mirror finish, has been permanently installed in Millennium Park in Chicago. A colossal block shaped like a train, comprising several tons of gooey red pigment blended with wax and petroleum jelly, moves imperceptibly slowly on a track that passes through doorways smaller than the massive block. Inhe was awarded the Padma Bhushan by the Indian government which is India's third-highest civilian award. The objects seem to be coming out of the ground or the wall, the powder defining a surface, implying that there is something below the surface, like an iceberg poking out of the subconscious. Kapoor's work has evolved into an abstract and perceptually complex elaboration of the sculptural object as at once monumental and evanescent, physical and ethereal--as in his famous Cloud Gate in Chicago's Millennium Park.

    Yellow for example, is a large, concave wall piece painted a bright, saturated yellow, creating a sunny, circular void seamlessly within the gallery wall. The work has to be looked at from as wide a base as possible. Professionals of this game are astronomers and microscopists. Maneuvering between various scales of works, different materials and spaces, his concave or convex mirrors swallow the viewers and recesses carved in stone and often pigmented seem as to disappear.

    With more than ninety color images of these ambitious and complex works, three original essays, an extended interview with Kapoor, and selections from his sketchbooks, this book confirms Anish Kapoor's place as one of the most remarkable sculptors working today. His art pieces can be found in several major cities on the planet and also in collection worldwide, notably at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Modern in London and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Kapoor received a knighthood in the Birthday Honours for services to visual arts. Reflecting and distorting its surroundings, these mirror-like sculptures delve further into the realm of manipulations of form and space.
