The BRIT Awards has announced that artist Sir Anish Kapoor is the designer of its 2018 awards. The translucent red obelisk will be given to winners at a ceremony held on 21 February 2018 at The O2 in London.

Kapoor is the first sculptor to design the award, following in the footsteps of Pam Hogg, Tracey Emin, Philip Treacy, Damien Hirst, Sir Peter Blake and Dame Vivienne Westwood.

“I am pleased to have designed the BRIT award for 2018,” says the artist. “Sculpture is often a process of positive and negative form.  I have made the award using both.”   

“Sir Anish has created some of the most adventurous and memorable works of our life time which is reflected in the new BRIT award,” says BRITs chairman and CEO of Sony Music Jason Illey. “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.”
