Issue 20 marks the first time VNA have released two alternative covers. One, gold, is available exclusively through our web store and for subscribers, and the other, black and white, was until now available only at stockists. However for a limited time only you will also be able to buy this version direct from us – limited to 200 copies.
Very Nearly Almost is proud to release its twentieth issue. After six years and hundreds of artists featured, issue 20 is brought to you with an extra 32 pages, bigger and better than ever. This 164-page beast is brimming with features and beautiful images from some of the most talented artists in the world and the cover is graced by a living legend; the one and only Retna.
Producing some of the most visually stunning street art in recent history, Retna explains his signature style and the intricate processes behind his work. Not content with featuring one of the most exciting artists from across the pond we’ve also got interviews with the USA’s master of eco-surrealism painting Josh Keyes, the infamous skateboarding graffiti artist Neckface and the master of mystical worlds Greg Simkins.
No issue would be complete without an Australian artist and this time round we caught up with the man behind some of the most controversial pop-art and mash-up paintings, Ben Frost. But as usual we’ve also packed in some talented Brits in the forms of Guy Mckinley, with his anime-inspired characters and photographer Will Robson-Scott. Alongside them are chats with graffiti king Smash137 of Switzerland, street artists Ozmo and Above and German newcomer DeeDeeKid.
