A brand new ‘BRIT Awards’ statue has been unveiled, designed by the sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor and it’s a striking new take on the iconic award.

Sir Anish Kapoor is well-known for his groundbreaking contribution to the London 2012 Olympic Games. His design of the 178m high sculpture ‘ArcelorMittal Orbit’, is still located in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and is Britain’s largest piece of public art.

Speaking about his BRIT Awards creation, Kapoor has said: “I am pleased to have designed the BRIT award for 2018. Sculpture is often a process of positive and negative form. I have made the award using both.”
BRITs Chairman and Chairman & CEO of Sony Music UK and Ireland Jason Iley said: “Sir Anish has created some of the most adventurous and memorable works of our life time which is reflected in the new BRIT award. He constantly pushes boundaries and challenges the norm and I love the way he has reimagined this year’s award. The beauty of this award is that it challenges perspectives. Every which way you look at it, you discover more.”
The BRIT Awards 2018 with Mastercard will be broadcast live on ITV – Wednesday 21st February from London’s O2 Arena. Wonder who’ll be taking home the coveted statue?
