Anish Kapoor: Stupid Naughty Boy

Anish Kapoor is one of the world’s most famous artists. His shows attract huge audiences. His art fetches huge prices. He is in every sense an art star.
But he is also an enigma. Many people know his work and his name, but not many know him. Notoriously reclusive by nature, he’s a complex and secretive thinker who grants few interviews and gives little away.
Until now.
During the 2022 Venice Biennale, Waldemar Januszczak was granted exclusive access to Kapoor and to two huge exhibitions of his work at the Accademia Gallery in Venice and the Palazzo Manfrin.
The result is an unusually intimate portrait of the artist and his work which penetrates the Kapoor carapace and digs deep into his character and motivation.
The main ambition of the film was to shine a powerful light on some of the most dramatic, turbulent and mysterious art of our times. And we succeeded.
