Slawn’s designs are created from bronze and have a three-part array of facial contortions. The virtually-ironic figures respectively signify alternative, gratitude and celebration and conceptually embody the phrase ‘hats off to you’. The metallic designs see Slawn deviate from his normal vibrant, spray-painted and difficult artworks, not solely in medium and tone, however by having the figures maintain their helmets of their palms. ‘My resolution to take away the helmet from the award is my manner of thanking The Brits for offering me with this chance,’ he explains.
