Having represented Britain in the XLIV Venice Biennale in 1990 and winning the Turner Prize in 2002, the British-Indian sculptor Anish Kapoor is one the biggest names on the art scene today, worth just over $85 million. His reflective mirror-like sculptures are instantly recognizable. The Sky Mirror outside the Nottingham Playhouse and Cloud Gate outside Millenium Park in Chicago are but two of his numerous large-scale public commissions. Much like his colleague Damien Hirst, Kapoor has branched out into real estate, but with earnings of $27 million in 2008 from art alone, his star seems constantly on the rise.
