Universal Music, the UK’s leading music company have revealed an exciting collaboration with British artist and designer Yinka Ilori for this week’s BRIT Awards.

London-based artist Yinka Ilori, who specialises in telling stories through design and inspired by the traditional Nigerian parables and African fabrics that surrounded him as a child, creates humorous, provocative and fun pieces of art that speak to the African history and resonates with different audiences all over the world.

As part of the commission with Universal Music, Ilori has created a special edition print titled ‘Love in a line’, which will be signed and gifted to each of Universal Music’s nominees, including the likes of Drake, Sam Smith and Ariana Grande.

Ilori has also designed the exclusive invitation for the annual Universal Music BRITs after-party, #UmusicBRITs, which celebrates one of the most significant nights in the global music industry calendar. His unique design, an explosion of colour, will also feature at the party itself, one of the most sought-after invites in showbiz which is attended by a VIP crowd of artists, models, actors and influencers.

“It’s a real honour to be working with Universal Music at such a pivotal time in my career. ‘Love in a line’ is celebration of our multiculturalism and reminds us that being different is beautiful and okay, which is something I wanted to celebrate through the artwork.” said Ilori.

Ilori recently won the commission to design this summer’s Dulwich Pavilion, a temporary outdoor structure which will open at Dulwich Picture Gallery during the London Festival of Architecture in June 2019. He will also be transforming the Thessaly Road Railway Bridge, Battersea after seeing off stiff competition in another public commission. Last year he starred on the cover of the ES Magazine and was named one of London’s most influential people by the Evening Standard.

  1. First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your mind before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts
    in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!
