Don’t miss this!
Australia’s premier contemporary style and culture event, CARBON festival, kicks off its third year of forums this April with a lineup of inspiring creative entrepreneurs and artists hand-picked from all over the world.
Speakers flying in from around the globe to share their stories of struggle and success include founder of the acclaimed streetwear brand, Stussy; the one and only Shawn Stussy, who, apparently, has spent the last 12 or so years surfing in Hawaii, as well as the recently-turned septuagenarian senator of street art reportage, Martha Cooper.
Joining the melee will be the best daredevil duo since Batman and Robin, Dabs & Myla, and www.booooooom.com creator, Jeff Hamada, as well as Aussie artist and one-man social glue factory, Mark Drew, graffiti powerhouse, Barry Mcgee, and a whole host of other amazing minds.
Our old favourites New Era’s Australian brothers and sisters will be getting down and Adidas are slinging some weight behind the organizers at Acclaim Magazine too, so it looks like a monster weekend in Melbourne is to be had.
We’ll be down there bringing you daily round ups in between our daily beer intake and naps.

Bad boy Alex Fakso snaps stuff that most people never even see.
Our man DSCREET made this video about him, it’s proper good.
He’s made books and everything:
When VNA met Miss Van in São Paulo to interview her for issue 21, we also had our good friend Dscreet shoot this video documenting Miss Van’s time in Brazil and the art she created whilst she was there. It’s a beauty.
RUN jazzes up the doors of the Tramshed. Dancing tattooed cows, flamethrowers, innebriated Germans and Damien Hirst all help inspire a unique new piece in Shoreditches hub.
A film by The Baron
It’s Friday and we have a super special announcement.
To celebrate reaching our twentieth issue last month and doing so as an independent publication, we decided to pay homage to some of the amazing artists we’ve been lucky enough to work with over the years, by gathering together twenty friends of VNA to create the ultimate sticker pack. With original, one-off artwork from each artist these are stickers you won’t get anywhere else and if we do say so ourselves we’ve got quite the lineup; 45RPM, A.CE, Buff Monster, D*Face, Dabs & Myla, Dscreet, Eine, Invader, Kid Zoom, LUDO, Mr Penfold, Mysterious Al, Numskull, Nychos, Richt, Ronzo, The London Police, The Toasters, The Yok & Vinnie Nylon.
The sticker packs are limited to an edition of 500, hand numbered and available to buy exclusively from our website while stocks last. A great stocking filler which we hope you’ll be as crazy about as we are. Grab them here!
A new film by The Baron sees Dabs and Myla injecting some colour into LA with their tiger piece on this truck. Filmed and directed by Dscreet as part of the new DOTS+ series of short graffiti art films, this a great video to bring a smile to your face on this sunny Friday.
The two geezers from Burning Candy are currently in Manhattan’s Factory Fresh gallery working hard decorating walls. The whole things is quite secretive but you can find out more about this and the new movie that BC are working on from Katarina Hybenova post at Bushwick Daily.
