Very Nearly Almost (VNA Magazine) is a UK magazine that documents the street art and graffiti scene since 2006.
Each issue presents street art articles about different places in the world, and interviews with artists.
Previous cover artists included Eine, Sickboy, D*Face, Kid Acne, Insa and ROA.
I was looking everywhere, and asking everyone about where to find VNA Magazine in Paris, but I couldn’t get a copy…
I heard about the magazine for the first time on the Vandalog Blog, edited by RJ Rushmore.
But today, I have issue 15 in my hands and I’m so happy 🙂 Thanks to the VNA team, you rock!
This issue features Shepard Fairey aka OBEY (who is currently exhibiting in Paris, at the Magda Danyz Gallery with Jace, see Obey The Print Show).
VNA issue 15 presents great artists such as Shepard Fairey, Burning Candy, Logan Hicks, Nychos and Elph, talks about the event at MOCA in Los Angeles and there are street art photos from Berlin, London (including one of Psychonautes) and LA.
Each issue is available as a regular magazine, plus there is a Limited edition « Special pack » and a launch party organised in London.
For issue 15 for example, the launch party was at Black Rat Gallery in Shoreditch, East-London and the pack contains a screenprinted limited edition VNA 15 by Shepard Fairey, a limited edition Obey sticker pack and a limited edition VNA x OBEY t-shirt.
The surprise is that not only did I get a copy from VNA but I also have a copy for you guys…
Because this month we are celebrating the StreetLove first Anniversary, we will organise a competition so that one of you can discover this magazine!
