Anish Kapoor / Royal Academy of Arts

So this week in between gigs in London I had a visit to the Anish Kapoor exhibit at the Royal Academy of Arts. It felt a bit pricey at £12 for a not huge number of pieces, but some of the pieces are pretty impressive.

Anish Kapoor is a sculptor/architect making quite large pieces in some instances.

Due to time and not really being an expert on the man or his art I’m not going to go into huge details or analysis of the pieces here, at least not now, but the immediate standout was the multi-room encompassing Svayambh. Its a giant blood red piece of wax moving between rooms – truly a sight to behold.

Amongst other things there was a room themed on mirrors and hot wax being shot from a canon (make sure you get to see this happen – once every twenty minutes).
