This week we're catching up with the Brooklyn street art duo known as ASVP. The pair have shown at galleries and on the streets around the world, but are based here in our neighborhood. We are incredibly proud of the new screen print edition ASVP launched last week with Sugarlift, and are excited to get to know the mysterious duo. Scroll down to read our interview with the artists, and to get an inside look at the process behind their newest piece with Sugarlift!
