ABOUT

Vikesh Kapoor is an artist born in Sunset Pines, Pennsylvania.

He is the recipient of CENTER’s 2018 Project Development Grant for his ongoing photo-based narrative, See You At Home. This project has received support from curators at National Portrait Gallery, SFMoMA, LACMA and the Andy Warhol Museum.

Selections from this body of work exhibited at Aperture Foundation in April 2019.

Kapoor’s photographs have been featured in The Guardian, Libération, The Boston Globe and Bullet Magazine, amongst others.

He has studied with Kathy Moran of National Geographic, Alex Webb of Magnum Photos and Jim Estrin of The New York Times. 

In 2013, Kapoor released his debut album, The Ballad of Willy Robbins, to critical acclaim. His songs have been highlighted by The New Yorker, The Guardian, Interview Magazine and Rolling Stone. Rough Trade awarded his debut one of the Best 100 Albums of the Year.

In 2010, Kapoor had the distinction of performing an original song during Howard Zinn's memorial service alongside Noam Chomsky and prominent civil rights activists at Boston University.

He resides in Los Angeles, California.
