While we were out in the States, Canadian artist Denial was recently over the border in Detroit for his part in the 1xRun ‘Murals in the Market’ project. We caught up with him there and skipped back over the border to check out his studio in Windsor, just across the water from the Motor City. Currently he shares his artist’s playground of a studio with the director of Australian print company Stupid Krap, Ben Frost, when he’s in the country.
In his own words, Denial takes us on a photo tour through his studio and neighbourhood…

By now you might have picked up on the fact we’ve got the legend that is Miss Van gracing the cover of issue 21, but we’ve also got interviews with a whole host of other incredible artists including Rone, Johnny Crap, Inkie, Mad-C, Dal & Faith47, NoseGo, Joe Fenton, Alex Fakso, Wurstbande, Amanda Marie, Olek and Nicolas le Borgne. Here’s a little taster of what you can expect inside your magazine.

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.
We’ve had our eye on this Philadelphia based artist for a while now and love his new piece on the Woodward Gallery Project Space in New York entitled “Daily Spontaneous Excursions”.
