VNA issue 29 is more than a little bit special. This issue we go all out with a cover featuring the work of LA-based Cleon Peterson, whose violently bacchanalian work echoes the brutality he sees in society at large.
We take a trip to New York to look at the work of legendary street photographer, Ricky Powell and the co-founder of Alife clothing turned book designer, Tony Arcabascio.
Over in France, we cover the work of gif-illustrator, Mattis Dovier and the godfather of life-sized politicised stencils, Blek Le Rat.
Back in the UK, we take a peek at the nature-loving Jessica Albarn and a look at the latest street work from London, San Juan and Las Vegas.
As if all this wasn’t enough, we also take a look at the works of Travis Price, Berlin-based James Bullough and Bunnykitty creator, Persue. Plus a retrospective on the work of Ron English and the low-brow lowdown Detroit kingpins Inner State Gallery.
With photos by Birdman, Tim Hans, Charlotte Dutoit/Justkids and Nicole Reed, along with our other awesome regulars, this is possibly our finest issue to date.
