Championing British creativity year after year, the Brit awards invite an artist, designer or creative to mastermind the coveted Brit statue. With a long list of world renowned artists including Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Philip Treacy, the pressure will be on for 2016’s artist, Pam Hogg, to create the iconic figure in the year that celebrates the 40th anniversary of punk.
Since the launch of her first fashion collection in 1981, the designer Pam Hogg has created outfits for huge icons such as Debbie Harry and Rihanna. A singer as well as fashion creative, the designer has often fronted bands as well as infusing the influence of punk music into her bold, avant-garde designs.
To celebrate this year’s theme, Hogg has designed not one, but an army of statues, one for each category. With playful character the trophies feature glitter, metallic paint and star emblems to represent four decades of eccentricity and glam-punk edge. The awards will take place in February 2016 with a plethora of stars receiving their unique punk-inspired prize.
