In India I've been to all the award functions, but that was in Hindi; now it's in English so it's a much bigger scale.

Instead of focusing on my looks I focus on the character that I am playing.

Not exactly but I get inspiration from stories which are unconventional.

If you make a feelgood film which is complete candyfloss, where everybody is good and everything is beautiful and hunky dory, it won't appeal to the audience.

One must not believe any of those mythologies about oneself as an artist.

Tags: Artist, Oneself

One of the great currents in the contemporary experience of art is that it seems to come out of the experience of the author.

Re-investing in one's own little moments of insight is very important.

Red, of course, is the colour of the interior of our bodies. In a way it's inside out, red.

Sculpture occupies the same space as your body.

The eye is a very quick instrument, much quicker than the ear. The eye gets it immediately.

Tags: Eye, Instrument, Quick

The idea is that the object has a language unto itself.

Tags: Idea, Language, Object

The work itself has a complete circle of meaning and counterpoint. And without your involvement as a viewer, there is no story.

Tags: Meaning, Story, Work

There's something imminent in the work, but the circle is only completed by the viewer.

We live in a fractured world. I've always seen it as my role as an artist to attempt to make wholeness.

Tags: Artist, Role, Seen

Work grows out of other work, and there are very few eureka moments.

I used to empty the studio out and throw stuff away. I now don't. There will be a whole series of dead ends that a year or two down the line I'll come back to.

Much more quotes by Anil Kapoor below the page.

Maybe the way we have learned to look has changed in the last 25 years, and the exotic is much more acceptable. There are many artists now, younger artists, who work out of the exotic.

One does afford oneself the luxury to come into the studio and all day, every day, spend one's life making aesthetic propositions. What an immense luxury.

One does not set out with the idea that I've just had a great idea and now I'm going to go and carry it out. Almost all art that's made like that doesn't go anywhere.

Tags: Art, Great, Idea

What interests me is the sense of the darkness that we carry within us, the darkness that's akin to one of the principal subjects of the sublime - terror.

Tags: Darkness, Sense, Within

What one does in the studio is to pose a series of problems to oneself. I've got to look for some deeper meaning, for some reason for this thing to be in the world. There's enough stuff in the world.

Tags: Enough, Problems, Reason

Artists don't make objects. Artists make mythologies.

Tags: Art, Artists, Objects

I am Indian, and I'm proud of it. Indian life is mythologically rich and powerful.

Tags: Life, Powerful, Rich

You know that day after day of, Oh God what am I going to do with myself feeling? The fear of the emptiness that it implies keeps me going.

Tags: Fear, Feeling, God

A work will only have deep resonance if the kind of darkness I can generate is something that is resident in me already.

Tags: Darkness, Deep, Work

Being an artist is a very long game. It is not a 10-year game. I hope I'll be around making art when I'm 80.

Tags: Art, Game, Hope

That freedom that Picasso afforded himself, to be an artist in a huge number of ways, seems to be a huge psychological liberation.

Tags: Artist, Freedom, Himself

It's precisely in those moments when I don't know what to do, boredom drives one to try a host of possibilities to either get somewhere or not get anywhere.

Tags: Boredom, Either, Try

Red is a colour I've felt very strongly about. Maybe red is a very Indian colour, maybe it's one of those things that I grew up with and recognise at some other level.

All ideas grow out of other ideas.

Tags: Grow, Ideas

Content arises out of certain considerations about form, material, context-and that when that subject matter is sufficiently far away.

Tags: Away, Far, Matter

I feel the symbolic world is the nub of a problem for an artist.

Tags: Artist, Problem, Symbolic

I feel there's everything to do yet.

Tags: Job, Space, Understand

I'm not an artist who has an agenda that's set by the work.

Tags: Agenda, Artist, Work

I've always felt that if one was going to take seriously this vocation as an artist, you have to get beyond that decorative facade.

Tags: Artist, Felt, Seriously

I've nothing to say.

Tags: Art, End

If you get a bad review, you take that in your stride.

Tags: Bad, Review, Stride

It's the role of the artist to pursue content.

Tags: Artist, Content, Role

Much of what I make is geometric, and has a kind of almost mathematical logic to the form.

Tags: Almost, Geometric, Logic

My first show sold within the first 3 minutes, and I came back to the studio and spent the next two and a half years making almost nothing.

Tags: Almost, Making, Show

My work is not about my life history. It's not about the story of my neurosis.

Tags: History, Life, Work

One can hardly be Indian and not know that almost every accent, which hand you eat your food with, has some deeper symbolic truth, reality.

Tags: Food, Reality, Truth

One cannot set out to make a work that's spiritual. What is a contemporary iconography for the spiritual? Is it some fuzzy space?

Tags: Cannot, Spiritual, Work

One doesn't make art for other people, even though I am very concerned with the viewer.
