Burna Boy

Sajjad Musa is a NYC based artist who created the album art for Burna Boy’s latest album. Using a variety of techniques and mediums, Sajjad’s work primarily investigates inner city motifs and expresses them aesthetically and sonically, elevating the culture in a unique and unexpected way. Sajjad’s work is meticulously executed and socially aware, highlighting issues of mass consumption, connectedness and daily life.

The piece is part of a continuous series titled Break Bread.

Utilizing fragments of international currency, Break Bread aims to challenge society’s view of money as a Dystopian catalyst of division and separation among people. Meticulously hand-crafted, this body of work touches on topics of political leadership, racial equality, sexuality, violence, and everyday life. Each piece serves as a visual metaphor for the commonalities between all cultures and communities, re-imagining our world as a harmonious shared universe, employing money as a vehicle for shared wealth and prosperity rather than mass consumption and greed.
