Alex Lehours – Le Coq Sportif

Alex Lehours is a hugely talented, massively prolific artist, designer and illustrator. Originally born in the UK, he emigrated to Australia at a young age, where he promptly got amongst it.

Lehours is pretty French-sounding, what’s your family background?

Lehours is a French name. My dad is French and my mum is English. Both my brother and I were born in England (Maidenhead, 40 mins outside of London) and we moved to Australia when I was 4. A bizzare mix dont you think??

VNA 19 – Everything you need to know…

Very Nearly Almost magazine (VNA) is proud to announce Issue 19, fronted by the Australian luminary Anthony Lister. Regaling VNA with tales of debauchery and allowing us a glimpse into the inner workings of his mind and multiple personas, Lister provides an in-depth interview alongside exclusive shots of his Brisbane studio.

As always we’ve created a limited edition too, a four-colour screen-print from Lister’s most recent body of work, commenting on the Australian identity. As usual, 80 of these will be available exclusively at the London launch, 20 in our online lottery and 50 will be sent out surreptitiously to stockists around the world.

Issue 19 includes exciting features on several other artists from around the world, including quite a few artistic double acts. We bring you interviews with south coast photo-realism duo Best Ever, German brothers Low Bros as well as the ever popular NYC based twins How&Nosm. We also delve into the world of illustrative master Ken Taylor, muralists Remed and ECB plus Japanese-Australian fine artist Twoone and UK-based illustrator French.

We will also be bringing you shots of street art and graffiti from around the world, with a focus on Newcastle, Reykjavik and of course our very own London town.


Please join us to celebrate the launch of this issue at DreamBagsJaguarShoes from 6-9pm on 28th June.
Space is limited, so please RSVP: rsvp@verynearlyalmost.com

Pre-orders will be available on our website from today to be sent out out on June 28th.

To enter the online lottery and be in with a chance of purchasing a screen-printed VNA issue 19 please email LTD@verynearlyalmost.com before 6pm on 28th June to register your interest.
