As the art world continues to grow and develop, we’re trying to age gracefully too, with a move towards the broader culture that surrounds street art and graffiti.
This issue we go 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.
We take a trip to New York to 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, we cover the work of gif-illustrator, Mattis Dovier and the godfather of life-sized politicised stencils, Blek Le Rat.
Back in the UK, we 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, we also take 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.
As always, we have a Limited Edition release of 150 – and this issue it’s possibly our best yet, with a screen-printed front cover and box set signed by Cleon Peterson, including die-cut stickers and postcards.
With shots from Birdman, Charlotte Dutoit (Justkids), Tim Hans and Nicole Reed, plus all our regular contributors, this is one of our finest issues to date.
Available at the LA and London launches, plus, for international fans, a small number of time-released copies on the website – www.verynearlyalmost.com/shop.
