M.I.A. has released three full-length albums and a handful of mixes. She’s also a visual artist, having gotten her start by designing album covers for Justine Frischmann of Elastica, and selling some of her early work to Jude Law.

Her brand new coffee-table book, out now from Rizzoli, is a collection of the artwork she made to accompany each of her albums — ArularKalaMaya — as well as the Vicki Leekx mix and her record label N.E.E.T.

M.I.A. is the only artist ever to be nominated for an Academy Award, Grammy Award, Brit Award, Mercury Prize and the Alternative Turner Prize.
