Anish Kapoor has generously donated Untitled, 2015 to the Artists for Pitzhanger initiative. In this etching, the deep red and encroaching darkness recall Kapoor’s signature artistic concern with the poetic quality of colour and organic form.
The donated limited edition etching also echoes Kapoor’s approach in the installation Marsyas in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern in 2002 and the interior shadows of Kapoor’s Leviathan installation at the Grand Palais, Paris 2011
Pitzhanger was honoured to have Sir Anish Kapoor CBE, RA as the inaugural exhibiting artist at the newly restored Manor and Gallery in March 2019. The exhibition brought together a new body of his mirror works to create a relationship between sculpture, architecture and the viewer.
Known primarily as a sculptor, Kapoor first began producing prints in the late 1980s. Using the vocabulary of his drawings and sculptures suggestive of organic forms and structures that materialise from deep colour to create both a physical and psychological space.

He is renowned for his public sculptures that are often on a vast and architectural scale, these include Marsyas (2002) for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, Cloud Gate (2004) in Chicago’s Millennium Park, Leviathan at the Grand Palais, as part of Monumenta (2011) and Orbit, (2012) in the Queen Elizabeth Park, London.
