DAMIEN HIRST has designed the 2013 Brit Awards statue. The artist is the third British creative to give the music prize a makeover, following Dame Vivienne Westwood in 2011 and Sir Peter Blake in 2012.
“I am honoured to be asked to design this year’s statue,” said Hirst. “It has become such an iconic award, I love the Brits.”
Hirst’s statue is covered with bright multi-coloured dots – a signature motif of the artist. The trophies will be handed out during the ceremony on February 20.
“Damien is truly one of the most important British artists and his reimagining of the statue will make winning a 2013 Brit an even more special proposition,” said Brits chairman David Joseph.
