VNA 29 – Same, same, but different
As the art world continues to grow and develop, Very Nearly Almost are trying to age gracefully too, with a move towards the broader culture that surrounds street art and graffiti.
This issue they’re going all out with a cover featuring the work of LA-based Cleon Peterson, whose violently bacchanalian work echoes the brutality he sees in society at large. Taking a trip to New York, they look at the work of legendary street photographer, Ricky Powell and the co-founder of Alife clothing turned book designer, Tony Arcabascio.
Over in France, they cover the work of gif-illustrator, Mattis Dovier and the godfather of life-sized politicised stencils, Blek Le Rat. Whilst back in the UK, they take a peek at the nature-loving Jessica Albarn and a look at the latest street work from London, San Juan and Las Vegas.
As if all this wasn’t enough, VNA 29 also includes a look at the works of Travis Price, Berlin-based James Bullough and Bunnykitty creator, Persue. Plus a retrospective on the work of Ron English and the low-brow lowdown Detroit kingpins Inner State Gallery.
