The BRIT Awards with MasterCard 2012 statue has been given a radical makeover by legendary pop artist, Sir Peter Blake.
Following the 2011 haute couture reinvention by Dame Vivienne Westwood, the artist responsible for some of the most iconic album sleeves in music history has given the 2012 statue a cool new look sure to rival those seen on this year’s red carpet.
Responsible for iconic album art including ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonley Hearts Club Band’ by The Beatles, ‘Stanley Road’ by Paul Weller and ‘Stop The Clocks’ by Oasis, Blake has spoken of his pride at reworking the 2012 BRIT Awards statue.
“I am very proud to be this year’s designer for the iconic BRIT Award trophy,” Blake revealed. “It is wonderful to be a part of this most important and exciting music event, honouring the greatest of talents shaping our musical landscape.
“I’ve enjoyed the creative challenge to honour such leading performers enormously.”
The artist’s design has already met with rapturous approval from BRITs chairman David Joseph, who told of his pleasure with Blake’s reinvention.
“We feel hugely honoured that Sir Peter Blake accepted the challenge of designing the trophy this year – the result is incredible,” said Joseph. “Having created possibly the world’s most iconic album sleeve with The Beatles, Sir Peter’s work is synonymous with the best of British music.”
