Example text

Anish Kapoor is an Indian-born British sculptor. He is another artist who likes to work on a very large scale. One of his most famous sculptures, Cloud Gate, can be seen in Chicago. It is possible to walk right up to it and touch it. He wanted his art to blend into the city’s landscape. By using a reflective surface, he could show the people of Chicago the wonderful and interesting landscape that they already had around them. Kapoor often works with very bright colours. He was inspired to use such bright colours by the many colours of spices he saw in India.
