Byron School of Art, in partnership with Byron Writers Festival, invites you to an evening with Bornean-Australian rapper, poet, artist and author Omar Musa. Omar will perform a selection of poetry from his latest book, Killernova, against a backdrop of his stunning woodblock print artworks. The author of four poetry books and four hip-hop records, Omar is an experienced and captivating performer, receiving a standing ovation at TEDx Sydney at the Sydney Opera House.
‘Omar Musa is a rare kind. As visual in his poetry as he is poetic in his visuals. This collection allows us to to dive deeper into his worlds, to experience the poems alongside the carvings adds greater dimension to each.’
— Kae Tempest
