Very Nearly Almost - #24
November 2013. Magazine for street art/graffiti/illustration/art culture. On the cover: London’s secretive living legend, Paul Insect. This enigmatic artists talks about switching styles and what have you. Other artists featured in this issue include urban artist Matt Small, who’s received some stick in the past for his renditions of what people would call ‘chavs’ in a high-art style, plus Irish ex-pat illustrator Oliver Jeffers, who now lives across the pond, producing unique picture books and fine art with a twist. We also take a look at the Graffuturist art movement from the perspective of the artists that live and breathe it, including an in-depth visit to the annals of Jaybo Monk’s brain. Low-brow urban vinyl maestro Tim Biskup talks punk rock, Disneyland, and gig poster art. We also caught up with Dutch fine artist Joram Roukes, saucy skateboard deck artist Jacob Ovgren, and took a trip to the desert to bring you photos from an exclusive shoot with graffers including previous cover artist Insa.
