M.i.a Releases Book Of Her Musical Inspirations And Art
Fresh from her recent ‘Best Video’ win at the AMA’s for her abstract visual ‘Bad Girls’ – artist M.I.A has released a brand new autobiographical book for fans, which sees the former art college student show off her artistic licence mixing artwork, prints and interviews from the notoriously private artist…
According to Soul Culture, the 37-year-old’s new book will include details from the beginning of her career right up to the current date. The singer, who has previously discussed escaping from war torn Sri Lanka with her family, always used her experiences to influence both her art and music.
In the personal project, the ‘Swagger Like Us’ artist introduces the book with her real name: Mathangi Maya Arulpragasm, and states: "This book is a document of the five years of M.I.A art that spans across three LPs: Arular, Kala and Maya."
Throughout the project, M.I.A is refreshingly candid about her influences, stating: “Everything I did as an artist or everything everyone does an artist comes down to these two things: people or money."
The book will be available in hardback from Amazon.
