ALL GOOD THINGS

VNA_ALL GOOD THINGS_1200x1200 full

As the saying goes, ALL GOOD THINGS must come to an end and, after 10 amazing years, Very Nearly Almost Magazine is shutting up shop.

Finishing on a high that has seen the front cover graced by some of the brightest stars of the contemporary art world, including D*Face, Invader, Shepard Fairey, Futura, Swoon, Martha Cooper and more, the team behind VNA have made the difficult decision to draw this chapter to a close with an exhibition and forthcoming book.

In celebration of the incredible people that have made the magazine what it is, VNA are presenting their 10th Anniversary group show with some of the team’s favourite featured artists. 50+ artists make up this hand-picked selection of the world’s top talent, showing in one of East London’s longest-running contemporary urban art institutions, StolenSpace Gallery.

Showcasing work from all over the world, ‘ALL GOOD THINGS’ is comprised of original artworks, exclusive artist proofs and hand-finished prints from some of the leading international artists – artists who have helped shape the scene as we know it today. The VNA team has also assembled a tailored collection of some of the brightest new painters making waves across the globe.

The exhibition is all up for grabs, with artwork auctioned off on artFido and all proceeds from the auction sales donated to Macmillan Cancer Support. Bidding will begin at midday Thursday 27th April, closing at midnight on Sunday 30th April at:

www.artfido.com/vnamagazine

On the opening night, our VNA Newsstand will be bursting with back stock, including tees, stickers and other goodies – all at bargain prices. Hidden in amongst the stand, there will be a complete set of the VNA archive, from 1 to 35, available to buy from our private collection, including limited edition PP’s – strictly one archival item per person to keep things fair!

As with anything VNA-related, there will of course be a drink or two. Our friends at Sailor Jerry have kindly furnished us with a choice of delicious bespoke spiced rum cocktails and a deuce of their finest mixologists.

As if that wasn’t enough, we’ll be providing some of the lovely Soffle’s Pitta Chips to soak up some of the booze and giving away over a hundred free tacos from Luardos – served from Insa’s hand-painted taco truck.

The show opens for public viewing from 6-9pm Thursday 27th April and daily until the 30th April 11am-7pm at: StolenSpace Gallery, 17 Osborn St, London E1 6TD

Artists include:

45RPM, AJ FOSIK, ARYZ, BLEK LE RAT, C215, CAM SCALE, CHLOE EARLY, CONOR HARRINGTON, CYRCLE, D*FACE, DAN KITCHENER, DAVE WHITE, DAVID SHILLINGLAW, EELUS, EINE, ELK / LUKE CORNISH, ERMSY, FAILE, FINTAN MAGEE, GAIA, GEORGIA HILL, GHOSTPATROL (DAVID BOOTH), HERAKUT, INSA, INVADER, JAMES JEAN, JOE HOLBROOK, KID ACNE, LISTER, M-CITY / MARIUSZ WARAS, MOBSTR, MR JAGO, MYSTERIOUS AL, NIELS ‘SHOE’ MEULMANN, PAUL INSECT, REMI ROUGH, RONE, RONZO, RUFUS DAYGLO, SHEPARD FAIREY (OBEY), SICKBOY, STENDEC, STEVE CROSS, TOASTER, THE LONDON POLICE, TILT, TIZER, TODD FRANCIS, TOM FRENCH, TRISTAN EATON (TRUSTO CORP), VHILS, WILL BARRAS

The TINYPINK – A New Breed of Stencil Cap

LineUp

The urban art industry seems in a constant state of flux as both innovators and artists themselves push the medium and technique to new heights; to achieve a bigger wall, a brighter colour or, in the case of the all new TINYPINK, a thinner, crisper line. With just two days left on it’s Kickstarter project, the final step aiming to raise the initial production costs for the finished product, we went in for a closer look. Continue Reading →

VNA x CYRCLE LTD Edition – ON SALE ONLINE NOW

Due to the hand-made rings, we’ve been waiting on stock to arrive so we can send these out, but now they’re here and we think this is probably the best Limited Edition box set we’ve ever done…

VNA_31_SPECIAL6

The rings, designed by CYRCLE, are a pewter version of their previous design, which was cast in brass. These weighty pieces are made as collectible showcase items and not for actual use, but they come in 2 different sizes, large and small. The rings are a lenticular design and read ‘CHAOS’ looking one way across the ridges and ‘ORDER’ reading the other way. The dual nature of the rings reflects the duality of CYRCLE’s work.

VNA_31_SPECIAL3

Also included in the set is a front & back screen-printed magazine, signed by CYRCLE, complete with 2 photo-prints and a set of 4 stickers, all of this is then wrapped in a matching protective screen-printed sleeve. This really is one of our finest productions and priced at only £50, it’s an absolute steal. We don’t expect them to stick around long…

VNA_31_SPECIAL4

We apologise in advance to our international customers as the postage on these is quite high, but due to the high value of the set, we want to make sure they all reach you without disappearing along the way, so please bear that in mind when ordering.
