London, England (CNN) -- Award-winning sculptor Anish Kapoor is considered one of the most influential artists of his generation.

Famous for his large-scale public installations, 56-year-old Kapoor has an extensive body of work that ranges from vibrant colored pigments and shiny, sky-reflecting mirrors to ambiguous and often gargantuan public monuments across the world.

Experimenting with scale, color and form, the Indian-born artist incorporates a broad range of materials in his work, including stainless steel, fiberglass, wax and oil-based paint.

His creations, at times optimistic and humorous and others more visceral, invite viewers to look beyond the confines of space as well as to contemplate questions about their place in the world.
