Yes, that’s right!
Anish Kapoor is having an exhibition in the Gladstone Gallery, very close to the metrostation Louisa. I heard the mayor of Brussels saying last month that he wants a work of Anish Kapoor to be the center piece of the renewed Place de la Brouckère (known from the Coca-Cola bill board), but I didn’t realize that he was having an exhibition in Brussels. I love his artwork so I was quite excited when I saw the announcement!
Who is he?
If you don’t know him, don’t worry. You might have seen a picture of his work Cloud Gate in Chicago, also known as the Chicago Bean. Never heard of it? Then this is all you need to know: Anish Kapoor was born in India, but lives in London since the 70’s. He is known for his mirror-like sculptures that make you feel like you are going to fall over. He plays with the feeling of dept and shows several dimensions. Let me show what I’ve seen at the gallery (click on the pictures for a bigger image).
