The M.I.A Papermag shoot promotes the female emcee's most fascinating artwork to date: herself!

The Paper Magazine shoot features Mathangi Maya Arulpragasam, aka M.I.A., flipping the bird wearing garish clashing patterns designed by Versace and herself amid an explosion of colors. In the interview M.I.A. also talks about her new book 'M.I.A.' published by Rizzoli, New York, which showcases a collection of her unique artworks spanning her 10 year career as a musician and visual artist.

Love her or hate her, there's no denying M.I.A. creates politically and culturally charged art that reflects this internet-obsessed age and makes the younger generation question their surroundings. M.I.A. attended St Martins College in London and then went on to release three ground-breaking albums.

Her new book features artwork, illustrations, graphic prints and animated installations along with candid interviews with the artist about the subjects which inform her work and forwards by collaborators.
