VNA Issue 21 – Rone

I’m very happy to share that the New VNA mag is out and I have a feature.

All the info below:

vna_21_600px.jpeg

10-7.jpeg

Very Nearly Almost is proud to release its twenty-first issue. And it’s pretty special being the first to have a female as a cover artist; and who better to take this highly coveted position than the queen of street art herself Miss Van.

Her beautiful hand-painted “poupees” and vivid sexual creatures have been capturing the hearts of art lovers and for years and after a brief hiatus from working on the streets, she’s back in full force. We caught up with her to delve a little deeper into the mind of a lady who has blazed a trail through this macho graffiti world.

This issue is bursting with interviews – from the Ever-Fresh crew member Rone, monochromatic illustrative master Joe Fenton and street art new-comer NoseGo. We also have pearls of wisdom from those who have been on the scene since its inception, like Inkie, photographer Alex Fakso and Canadian artist Johnny Crap who also took the time to design our latest subscriber t-shirt . We caught up with a few other influential ladies including graffiti artist Mad-C and stencilist Amanda Marie, as well as illustrative duo Wurstbande from Berlin. There’s also something a bit different from another duo, husband and wife Dal & Faith47 who chose to interview each other. If this wasn’t enough you can also find interviews with queen of crochet, Olek, and the brilliant Nicolas le Borgne, a.k.a Odö – as well as a look at what’s been going on in the streets of London, Detroit and Japan.

VNA Issue 20

The always amazing VNA mag has just dropped their 19th issue- check it out:

VNA20_COVERS.jpg

After six years and hundreds of artists featured, help issue 20 is brought to you with an extra 32 pages, bigger and better than ever. This 164-page beast is brimming with features and beautiful images from some of the most talented artists in the world and the cover is graced by a living legend; the one and only Retna.



Producing some of the most visually stunning street art in recent history, Retna explains his signature style and the intricate processes behind his work. Not content with featuring one of the most exciting artists from across the pond we’ve also got interviews with the USA’s master of eco-surrealism painting Josh Keyes, the infamous skateboarding graffiti artist Neckface and the master of mystical worlds Greg Simkins.



No issue would be complete without an Australian artist and this time round we caught up with the man behind some of the most controversial pop-art and mash-up paintings, Ben Frost. But as usual we’ve also packed in some talented Brits in the forms of Guy Mckinley, with his anime-inspired characters and photographer Will Robson-Scott. Alongside them are chats with graffiti king Smash137 of Switzerland, street artists Ozmo and Above and German newcomer DeeDeeKid.



To celebrate the release of this milestone issue, VNA 20 will be available with two alternative covers; one is exclusive to our web store www.verynearlyalmost.com/shop

and subscribers, while the other will be available through our network of stockists.





ISSUE 19 & SUBSCRIPTION PACKAGES NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE AT www.verynearlyalmost.com

VNA 18 out now:

VNA 18: Conor Harrington

March 12th, 2012

Very Nearly Almost magazine is proud as punch to announce its 18th issue fronted by the phenomenal Conor Harrington. Coinciding with his critically acclaimed sold-out show ‘Dead Meat’ at Lazarides, we teamed up with award- winning photographer Shamil Tanna for some truly special snaps from the heart of Conor’s East London studio. Along with our exclusive interview, it gives fans and soon-to-be-fans a unique insight into just what makes him tick.

Issue 18 includes exciting features on several other brilliant artists from around the world. We bring you big names like Berlin-based UK talent Mode 2, south London abstract artist Remi Rough as well as tattooist/fine artist Shawn Barber. We delve into the crazy world of East London’s favourite German, Ronzo, chat broom calligraphy with Amsterdam graffiti legend Shoe, and finally head down under to quiz one of Australia’s finest exports, Shannon Crees.

As ever, we’re also bringing you shots of street art and graffiti from around the world, with images from Rio, Sydney and of course our very own London town.

Once again we created a limited edition too, and we’ve really pushed the boat out. It’s a five-colour screen-print based on Conor’s small paintings, known
as ‘Studies’ or, as he likes to call them, ‘Morning Glories’. 80 of these were sold at our launch, 20 in an online lottery and 50 were sent out surreptitiously to stockists around the world.

There are now five of these limited editions left which will be sent out at random in our next 100 orders through our website, which gives our readers a 1 in 20 chance of getting their hands on one.
