British artist Tracey Emin will design next year's statue for The Brit Awards.
Emin will re-work a ‘blank canvas’ trophy for the 2015 bash, following in the footsteps of Vivienne Westwood (2011), Sir Peter Blake (2012), Damien Hirst (2013) and Philip Treacy (2014).The London-born artist, who is famous for her pieces Everyone I Ever Slept With and The Bed, said of her involvement: “I was thrilled to be asked to rework the BRITs trophy.
"It's so nice as a visual artist to have an involvement with the creative side of the music industry and it's such a sweet celebration of the amazing talent we have in Britain today.”
BRITs Chairman Max Lousada said: “Tracey is one of the UK’s most prominent fine artists and we are delighted that she has agreed to re-work the 2015 BRITs trophy. "Having her on board means that we enter a fifth year of iconic and uniquely designed BRIT statues, and with British creativity very much at the heart of the event, it’s fitting that Tracey takes the baton and continues this tradition.”
The 2015 Brit Awards is due to take place at London's O2 Arena on Wednesday, February 23.
