Our cover artist, Aryz (pronounced ‘Arriz,’ for the record) is one of the youngest, most talented large-scale mural painters of his generation. He’s a total monster when it comes to the sheer size of his work, so we were stupidly excited when he agreed to do a cover feature.

We have plenty more visual stimulation from Stendec in the form of a photo feature, while Chasing Ghosts open up the doors to Israel in pictures from their recent visit to check out the Israeli art scene.

We then duck over to Culver City to chat gallery talk with Andrew Hosner of Thinkspace and get the lowdown on the scene from a different perspective.

Catching the crest of the wave with Kozyndan, we go between the sheets to talk about their rampant rabbits and spend some time with West Coast USA-based artist, Skinner, to discuss Mastodon album covers and hallucinogenics.

We get a minute with the Broken Fingaz crew to chat about skeleton porn, and the king of New York calligraphy, Faust, to uncover whether he really did a deal with the Devil to get this good.

Added to all of this, we have some amazing linear skate-style art from Don Pendleton, cute illustrations by Koralie, and more huge walls from Aussie muralist, Adnate.

To top it all off, we put our heads together with the guys behind international mural festival, POW! WOW! and revisit one of our favourite artists, Will Barras, as we go Diggin’ in the Crates to get a retrospective of his work over the years.

All-in, our 27th issue of VNA is another sterling selection of work from some of the most talented artists and supporters of the scene; we hope you can join us for the launch of the magazine and the limited edition screen-printed box set at Stolenspace Gallery, London on the 21st August, 6-9pm, supported by Tonki and Sixpoint Brewery.

We also have a small number of hand-painted originals for sale on the night from Stendec!

However, if you can’t make the launch, we will also have a small reserve of magazines available through our online lottery.
