If you’re somebody, then you’ll recognize that last name.

Given name: Mathangi Arulpragasam, also known as, M.I.A.  Well, talent runs in the fam.  Maya has an older sister, Kali Arulpragasam.  Kali is an artist and has a jewelry line called SuperFertile.  It’s jewelry with something to say.  The art of the Arulpragasam family is never just because, there’s ALWAYS a point.

For the latest line, Kali designed large…necklace-medallion-sculptures based off of the culture of war-torn countries such as Sudan, Haiti and her native Sri Lanka.
