There’s a good chance if you’ve been to a metropolitan city recently, you’ve seen the work of ASVP on your travels. Their work is up in cities such as London, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Hawaii, Zürich, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, just to name a few cities. Their current exhibit “Down To Earth” is now showing through the month of September at the Black Book Gallery in Colorado and features over 40 works from ASVP. ASVP usually let their art speak for itself, but recently, I was fortunate enough to get the chance to ask ASVP a few questions. Here’s what they had to say…
According2G: How did you get involved with street art?
ASVP: We did a few projects with Faile back around 2000 and it opened our eyes up to the street art scene.
A2G: What does ASVP stand for and what is the mission of your art?
ASVP: We never share what ASVP stands for. There’s really no mission, we just like making art.
A2G: Your art is up in cities all around the world. Which cities are the most receptive to your art? Did you face any challenges in particular cities?
ASVP: London and New York are probably most receptive. Each city poses different challenges. You just need to keep your eyes open wherever you are.
A2G: What advice would you give to aspiring artists?
ASVP: Don’t give up. Do what you love.
A2G: What’s next for ASVP?
ASVP: We have a show that’s currently running at the Black Book Gallery available artwork can be seen here: http://www.theblackbookgallery.com/artists/asvp/
