A cover portrait of a famous Polish rapper PEJA - for the new release of his Black Album, which was a summary of his life and career. The portrait refers to the tradition of Kintsugi, which is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — a metaphor for embracing your flaws and imperfections.
