M.I.A. The Book Is Now Available

29 October 2012, 20.59 | Posted in Art, Books, Fashion | No comments »

M.I.A. one of the noteworthy talents of our era launches a book simply titled M.I.A. documenting her creative life ,  through art and various sources of inspiration:

A documentation of her entire visual output and a telling of her story in collages, photos, and prints from her early years in art school at Central Saint Martins London through to her hugely successful three albums, mixtapes, and live performances at PS1 MoMA, Coachella, various exhibitions, installations, and music video shoots. The artwork is comprised of a wide variety of materials and media: video stills turned to stencils pieced back together to make animated installations; spray-painted canvasses scanned then made into digital collages; photographs videotaped, then run through bad computer connections to create graphic prints; artwork on nails, walls, prints for T-shirts, handmade stage costumes—anything she could find while she was touring. Also included are assorted lyrics and portions of an exclusive interview in which she discusses candidly the personal events and themes which informed her art and music at the time of each campaign. Includes foreword by Steve Loveridge, friend since her art school days and frequent creative collaborator with M.I.A.

Available at Barnes&Nobles.

M.I.A. on Cover of Nylon

MIANylonMag M.I.A. on Cover of Nylon

M.I.A.’s media blitz in front of her record release continues. Nylon has her on its cover for its July/August issue, and as in other recent interviews with Complex and the New York Times, Google seems to be the biggest recipient of her rage this go round. Love her a lot, but the truth is she or someone is botching how she’s being repped right now and it’s going to take her more than a minute to clean up the messes she’s made in multitudinous aisles.

Scan above from TFS. Images from the (extremely mediocre) Nylon editorial shoot after the flip.

More M.I.A. Controversy

30mia homepage articleLarge More M.I.A. Controversy

We highlighted M.I.A. on the coverage of Complex yesterday and mentioned that her marriage to a richie-rich combined with her incendiary politics was likely to draw heat, and sure enough, a recent New York Times profile goes in deep on M.I.A. and shines a very unflattering light on her dichotomous personality, making the backlash official with a capitol “O.”  To add gasoline to the fire, via CollegeFashion, we’ve learned that M.I.A. retaliated by tweeting the phone number of Lynn Hirschberg, who wrote the story! Fire!!

M.IA. on Cover of Complex

MIAComplex3 M.IA. on Cover of Complex

M.I.A. is on the cover of June Complex magazine, gearing up the press push for her upcoming album release. And judging from the accompanying interview, motherhood hasn’t mellowed her a drop. She’s still intensely political and all in on various and sundry conspiracy theories. I’ll say this though, she is going to be taking an endless amount of heat given her politics because of who she married, a guy who is deeply monied and has been that way since birth.

On this page, she’s looking her usual smoldering self, in a design by Henrik Vibskov. Lots more images after the flip, some of which are compelling if only because she’s styled in a decidedly different way than the rebel bohemian look we’re used to seeing her sport.

zoe kravtiz met ball 2010 05 Alex Wang, MIA and Zoe Kravitz at Met Ball

We already posted some of our favorites from the MET, but I’m posting up this image featuring Alexander Wang in lieu of my giant screw-up post (since deleted), whereby I got all excited over an upcoming Alex X Gap collabo, which as a reader kindly informed me was from last year! Ugh. And I call myself a Wang groupie—shame on me!
