21st Precinct

VNA recently teamed up with Robert Aloia and Suzuki Capital LLC to bring together a groupshow of epic proportions at a derelict police precinct in NYC.

The show will be in the old 21st Precinct police building, located on 327 East 22nd St. It was built in 1863 and acted as a functioning precinct until 1914. We will have a pop up gallery space and 4 floors of murals, wheatpastes, graffiti and installations by renowned artists from NYC and worldwide. In the tradition of the Outlaw Parties of the late 80′s and early 90′s we will re-invigorate an unused space with a wide range of creative minds working in multiple mediums. Scheduled opening reception is 8/16/14 and will be open for viewing all weekend and a closing event the following weekend. The building is scheduled for demolition the last week of August. This will be the first of an ongoing series with Suzuki Capital at their various properties throughout the boroughs.

Amanda Marie – I Was Just Thinking

White Walls present the first solo exhibition in San Francisco by American painter and stencil artist, Amanda Marie. Amanda plays with stencils and paint to place evocative characters in her work. The childlike illustrations explore deeper, more sophisticated themes of sexuality, envy, elation and greed.

Drawing on illustrations and characters that reference popular mid-20th century children’s books, Amanda has appropriated these ideals of an Americana childhood to her own contemporary devices. Playing with the notions of wholesome American innocence, her characters are then lifted out of context into a surreal state of stasis, dislocating them from their comfortable surroundings.

Opening Reception – Saturday, January 11, 7-11pm

at White Walls, 886 Geary Street, San Francisco, CA 94109

The Jaunt with Amanda Marie

The Jaunt have just announced their first international and female artist participant. Living and working in Colorado, USA, Amanda Marie will be on a transatlantic flight towards Glasgow, Scotland.

Featured in VNA issue 21, Amanda’s graphic stencil artwork has a distinctive look and feel. A combination of nostalgia and storybook style imagery, is paired with her smart and subtle surreal feel. The imagery that draws you in quickly keeps your interest. Her work has not gone unnoticed with recent and upcoming exhibitions at Stroke, Moniker Art Fair, Scope, The Garage and White Walls Gallery. Needless to say, Amanda Marie is killing it. Scotland, the land of bagpipes, gingers and lake monsters. The land where the price of a castle is the same as a New York apartment. And oddly enough the land where the national animal is actually a unicorn. But also the land of rich history and beautiful scenery amongst the many lakes and out stretched nature. Glasgow, the largest city of Scotland, is an industry city by heart but one with a modern and cultural pulse. The cultural pulse can be found at the Glasgow School of Art, the prestigious art school originally designed and built by architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. A true landmark in the city and still one of the leading art schools in the United Kingdom. We’re looking forward to seeing what Amanda Marie will be taking home from her trip.

VNA Issue 21

VNA issue 21 is here and it’s pretty special being the first to feature a female 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 21 will be available with two alternative covers; one is exclusive to our web store and subscribers, while the other will be available through our network of stockists.

As always there is a screen-printed edition of the magazine, with artwork designed by Miss Van, 100 of which will be available at our London launch party alongside a screen-printed envelope and limited edition postcards. 20 of these limited packs will be up for grabs through an online lottery, and 30 will be sent out at random to those purchasing copies of VNA 21 through our website. Keep an eye out on Instragram, FB & Twitter for a sneak peak of these.

To register your interest for our online lottery please email LTD@verynearlyalmost.com before 6pm on 31 January.

Pre-orders are now available and will be posted out on 31 January.
