VeryNearlyAlmost is a love letter to street art and graffiti. Starting out as a hand-made black and white zine of photographs, today it has developed into the leading printed documentation of graffiti and street art in the UK and beyond. Each new quarterly issue features a highly limited run of 150 screen printed covers produced by the cover artist. Previous screen printed editions include OBEY, D*FACE, INSA, ROA and EINE.
For the 16th edition VeryNearlyAlmost (VNA) announces the Parisian legend Invader as the cover artist.
“Our exclusive interview with the Rubik’s cube enthusiast provides a rare insight into this secretive street artist’s work. We talk about people stealing his work, airlines classifying his tiles as ‘weapons’, and invader-shaped waffles. We also chat about his ‘cousin’ Mr Brainwash and how he narrowly avoided arrest in LA during the Art In The Streets show.”
As with every issue of VNA, there’s a Limited Edition version adorned with a screen-printed cover designed by Invader himself. 80 of these will be available exclusively at the London launch with 20 available in an online lottery and 50 being sent out Willy Wonka style for global distribution.
Issue 16 also includes Ron English’s protégé, the Australian wunderkind Kid Zoom, old-school mad scientist CHU, commercial assassins TrustoCorp, pictorial pirates The Dead Sea Mob, interviews with Cath Love and Will Barras, and a photo feature on Obsession Of Colour.
If you’re in London today, September 8, join them and their hosts Pictures On Walls from 6-9pm to celebrate the launch of VNA 16.
