Very Nearly Almost, the UK’s premier international graffiti and street art mag has hit a landmark 25 issues and it’s a pleasure to write about such an achievement. Through the past 24 issues they have been one of the top voices on documenting the scene across the globe and their hard work has paid off with this celebratory issue.
Starting in 2006 as an independent black & white zine, VNA has grown to a full-colour institution. Receiving love and support the world over from artists, galleries and fans alike, this is our biggest, most jam-packed issue to date.
Featuring work from the legendary cartoons of Kevin Lyons, the amazingly evocative work of Chloe Early, and incredible talent of Dan Kitchener. Their work sits alongside a couple of Antipodean artists, tattooist and painter, Sprinkles, and the skate-punk skull-thrasher, Ben Brown. A photo feature from Nils Müller keeps all bases covered, as well as their regular city spotlights on street stickers, paste ups and spray-painted spots, this time amongst the bright lights of London, Hong Kong and Łódz.
The icing on the cake for this issue is the feature on Swoon. The full interview, exclusive studio shots and a huge insight into the projects that Swoon dedicates most of her time to. From helping rebuild Haiti, to putting a new roof on a church with her Braddock Tiles project, this feature is one not to miss!
To celebrate, the guys are throwing a launch party this Thursday at Far Rockaway on Curtain Road in London. Further details over on the VNA Facebook Page.
