Absolut

ABSOLUT, an iconic brand globally, is set apart by its partnership with creative minds. The latest addition to the ABSOLUT collaborative world of art is a spectacular installation by one of the world’s finest contemporary artists Anish Kapoor.

‘ABSOLUT KAPOOR’ is a dramatic work created out of negative space with his signature use of vibrant colour. Anish is an alchemist, bringing together elements which redefine and transform the relationships between object and viewer, sculpture and space. For ABSOLUT – through the interplay of form and colour, Kapoor aspires to astonish and evoke a sublime experience.
“ Absolut has a long history with artists, from Warhol to many of my great colleagues. The idea of somehow encapsulating whatever it is that one does in a single moment....and kind of making it an Absolut Kapoor. It is a strange notion, but one that I felt I could atleast go in pursuit of ”. –Anish Kapoor .
Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors of his generation. Born in Bombay, he has lived and worked in London since the early 70's. Kapoor sees his work as being engaged with deep-rooted metaphysical polarities; presence and absence, being and non-being, place and non-place and the solid and the intangible. Throughout Kapoor's sculptures his fascination with darkness and light is apparent.
