VNA Magazine – ‘ALL GOOD THINGS’ 10-Year Anniversary Exhibition

As the saying goes, ALL GOOD THINGS must come to an end and, after 10 amazing years, Very Nearly Almost Magazine is shutting up shop.

Finishing on a high that has seen the front cover graced by some of the brightest stars of the contemporary art world, including D*Face, Invader, Shepard Fairey, Futura, Swoon, Martha Cooper and more, the team behind VNA have made the difficult decision to draw this chapter to a close with an exhibition and forthcoming book.

In celebration of the incredible people that have made the magazine what it is, VNA are presenting their 10th Anniversary group show with some of the team’s favourite featured artists. 50+ artists make up this hand-picked selection of the world’s top talent, showing in one of East London’s longest-running contemporary urban art institutions, StolenSpace Gallery.

Showcasing work from all over the world, ‘ALL GOOD THINGS’ is comprised of original artworks, exclusive artist proofs and hand-finished prints from some of the leading international artists - artists who have helped shape the scene as we know it today. The VNA team has also assembled a tailored collection of some of the brightest new painters making waves across the globe.

The exhibition is all up for grabs, with artwork auctioned off on artFido and all proceeds from the auction sales donated to Macmillan Cancer Support. Bidding will begin at midday Thursday 27th April, closing at midnight on Sunday 30th April at:www.artfido.com/vnamagazine

The show opens for public viewing from 6-9pm Thursday 27th April and daily until the 30th April 11am-7pm at: StolenSpace Gallery, 17 Osborn St, London E1 6TD

BSMT Space exhibition: Lolie Darko 'La Fete Triste'



BSMT Space are proud to announce that French artist Lolie Darko will be showcasing her enchanting, big-eyed paintings in her first solo show 'La Fête Triste' here at the Dalston based gallery!

In this gloriously sullen and dark affair Lolie will be challenging our preconceptions in her thought-provoking artwork which depicts a cynical reality sustained by these sad, watery-eyed children as well as our views towards this naive vision of innocence.

Lolie paints walls in both Paris and London, using brushes and spray paint to deliver her topical message of disillusionment. For her solo show she has translated the same dismal imagery onto canvas, using either acrylics or oil paint for more detailed rendering. Join us for this splendidly dour celebration!

Private view March 30th.
Open to the public from March 31st- April 13th.
RSVP's for the private view to: info@bsmt.co.uk

'Paracosm', Greek Street Art Show At BSMT Space

London's BSMT SPACE presents 'Paracosm', a glimpse through Greek Street Art. A dip into the otherworldly and detailed imagination of five of Greece's biggest names in Street Art including Argiris Ser, Cacao Rocks, WD street art, Thisisopium and Simoni Fontana.

Take your mind on a journey free from all real-world attachment and immerse yourself in the colourful and surreal language of these five artists. From Ancient Greek παρά (para, “beside, alongside”) + κόσμος (kosmos, “world, universe”), 'Paracosm' will showcase this alternate universe of Greek Street Art in a way London hasn't seen before!

The show will run from February 17th to March 5th
Tuesday-Saturday: 12 -7pm / Sundays: 11-5pm

5d Stoke Newington Road, Dalston, N168BH
