UK based Very Nearly Almost magazine (VNA) is about to release Issue 19, fronted by the Australian luminary Anthony Lister.
“Regaling VNA with tales of debauchery and allowing us a glimpse into the inner workings of his mind and multiple personas, Lister provides an in-depth interview alongside exclusive shots of his Brisbane studio. As always we’ve created a limited edition too, a four-colour screen-print from Lister’s most recent body of work, commenting on the Australian identity. As usual, 80 of these will be available exclusively at the London launch, 20 in our online lottery and 50 will be sent out surreptitiously to stockists around the world. Issue 19 includes exciting features on several other artists from around the world, including quite a few artistic double acts. We bring you interviews with south coast photo-realism duo Best Ever, German brothers Low Bros as well as the ever popular NYC based twins How&Nosm. We also delve into the world of illustrative master Ken Taylor, muralists Remed and ECB plus Japanese-Australian fine artist Twoone and UK-based illustrator French. We will also be bringing you shots of street art and graffiti from around the world, with a focus on Newcastle, Reykjavik and of course our very own London town.”

London-based graffiti writer, Shok1, makes most of his work look as if it has been x-rayed; maybe in an attempt to make sure the letter structure is not broken! In his distinct spray-painting method, the artist recreated the recently passed StayHigh149’s iconic smoking stick figure and it’s one of the best tributes we have seen so far.
