"As chaotic and trippy as Magic Eye, this book is as overwhelming as it is powerful—much like the artist herself." ~Lifestyle Mirror
"...collages, prints and concept artwork by the renegade artist and turns them into a cacophony of colour. The riotous art appears on her manicure, clothing, walls and takes readers through the themes that underlie M.I A.'s work and self-presentation" ~National Post
About the Author
Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam, M.I.A. (her stage name, “Missing in Act(i)on”) is an English musician, producer, painter, and director. Her music combines elements of hip-hop, electronica, dance, alternative, and influences from around the world. She is the first artist to be nominated for all of the following awards: an Academy Award (for her work on the soundtrack for Slumdog Millionaire), two Grammys, a Brit Award, and Mercury Prize; and the first artist of Asian descent to be nominated for an Academy Award and Grammy in the same year. The first nine years of her life were marked by displacement due to the Sri Lankan civil war—a theme that influences her work, which is often political.

everyone whos a fan should buy this book!
The story of M.I.A.'s musical and graphic development stands on its own, but the vivid colors (including a metallic green spot color on the color) makes it a great coffee table book. Furthermore, the low-fi nature of her patterns and posters inspires experimentation with design tools, even among amateurs.
