VNA 32 is hot off the press! With the cover from Japanese-American artist Audrey Kawasaki, this issue’s Diggin’ In The Crates sees the return of the hugely talented Jeff Soto to give a rundown on some of the highlights of his extensive career and some of the directions he has explored over the course of his professional life. Cute French couple Ella & Pitr give a glimpse of their amazing partnership of 8 years, showing how they double up on their creativity, travelling worldwide to paint while still holding it down as parents. Dipping deep into the Antipodean pond, VNA looks at the amazing, huge murals of Aussie, Fintan Magee and look through the refined lens of Nicole Reed’s camera. While we’re out that way we also hunker down with New Zealander Askew to chat about Pacific Island life and world politics. Read more about the new issue after the jump!
