Anish Kapoor: Artist to Jeweller

Anish Kapoor is perhaps one of the most talented and influential sculptors of his generation. 

Establishing himself as a forerunner in the international art scene in the 1980s, he has become most famous for the adventurous forms, mediums and construction he dreams up.


From large to small scale, Kapoor has explored various mediums such as using mirrors or other reflective materials to create depth from pure, rounded shapes.

To create works of monumental scale using this concept is challenging; yet what about translation this vision and aesthetic into the small, almost miniature? As challenging as this sounds, it can be done; and he has done so through his ability to materialise this concept and fashion into jewellery.

From a collection of jewels in collaboration with Bulgari or his own one-off pieces, Kapoor creates wearable architecture. 

Contemporary, organic and pure, his jewels are truly small masterpieces.
