VNA Magazine just announced the release info about their newest issue #29. With Cleon Petersen as their cover artist, they picked his hometown of LA to celebrate the launch. The event will be held at Subliminal Projects, this Valentines Day, Saturday Feb. 14th, between 6-9pm.
This issue features an extensive report on Peterson and his violently bacchanalian work that echoes the brutality he sees in society. Other articles include a look into work of legendary street photographer, Ricky Powell and the co-founder of Alife clothing turned book designer, Tony Arcabascio, a peek at the nature-loving Jessica Albarn and a look at the latest street work from London, San Juan and Las Vegas. Plus, included is a retrospective on the work of Ron English and the low-brow lowdown Detroit kingpins Inner State Gallery.
As usual, the magazine will have a limited edition boxset designed by the cover artist available at the event. This includes a screen-printed front cover and boxset signed by Cleon Peterson, as well as die-cut stickers and postcards. These will be available exclusively at the LA and London launches, plus, for international fans, a small number of time-released copies will be available on their online store later on.
