The latest issue of Independent London based art and culture magazine VNA Magazine has just dropped through our letter box. For this edition number 35 the VNA team have delivered another strong issue of the magazine which is celebrating it’s 10 year with this release. Starting out 10 years ago as a free black and white photographic zine , VNA magazine has evolved and grown over the years to become one of the most respected publications covering the global street art movement and its culture.

Having supported the magazine right from its early beginnings, allowing for its distributing at his Stolen Space Gallery, the VNA team thought it only fitting to feature London based artist D*Face (Previously on Hookedblog) on the magazine cover of this issue, 10 years on.

While technically this is D*Face’s second VNA magazine cover, it is the first time the artist himself has appeared on the cover as shot by Shamil Tanna. D*Face’s first VNA magazine cover was way back in 2009 for Issue 10 of the magazine and saw the artists work grace the cover. Pictured above is the special screen printed edition of this issue.

For the magazine's regular feature ‘Diggin’ In The Crates’ they welcome back one of their previous cover stars Shepard Fairey (Previously on Hookedblog) who over 19 pages gives the lowdown on some of his highlights and milestones of his career.

Danish photographer Søren Solkær who has shot numerous portraits of international stars such as Bjork, David Lynch and the White Strip talkes about his photographic career and the 140 street artists he photographed for his ‘Surface’ book.

This issue once again sees a photographic round up of the freshest London street art with contributions from Hookedblog photographer Mark Rigney along with Nolionsinengland of Shoreditch Street Art Tours, Claude Crommelin, Paul Grey and Darryl Plummer.

Issue 35 is also pack with some great features on artists such as Wayne White, Croatian painter Lonac, Jarus, Spanish artist Cinta Vidal, Phill Blake and much more. You can pick up your copy of VNA Magazine online from their webstore, or in all good international bookstores.
