In the Hindustan Times,Sumati Mehrishi writes an interesting profile ( sorry, no link,perhaps not available online)of Anish Kapoor, the artist. I like what Kapoor says about being an artist:
Being an artist is a complicated job. I am really interested in knowing how I need to grow. I am interested in knowing how to be free as a person, as an artist. Of course one is full of prejudice and full of ' this I can do and that I can't do.' You have to be free of yourself to be really doing anything properly. Do anything really. That's the only way to keep alive creatively.
