Assume Vivid Astro Focus (AVAF) was founded by Eli Sudbrack in 2001. Sudbrack began working with Christophe Hamaide Pierson in 2005, and the duo often morphs into a collective, depending on their involvement in different projects. AVAF works in a vast array of media, including painting, drawing, installations, video, sculpture, neon, wallpaper, and decals, and often confronts gender, politics, and embedded cultural codes through pop imagery and neon colors. The two bring a passionate collaborative spirit to every aspect of their work, including conceiving projects in tandem, employing an extensive range of references and materials, and executing large-scale installations with expert and diversely talented teams.

AVAF has been the subject of major exhibitions and public art projects around the world. These include: the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati; The Faena Art Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina; the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami; The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, Norway; São Paulo Bienal in São Paulo, Brazil; the Museum of Modern Art in New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, Japan; 1st Athens Biennale in Athens, Greece; The Geffen Contemporary (MoCA)in Los Angeles; and the 2004 Whitney Biennial in New York, among others.

In addition, AVAF's work often and easily segues into the fashion industry and popular culture. They have collaborated with designers such as Comme des Garçons, providing their imagery for both printed and digital matter, and Lady Gaga, who incorporated their art into the "Gaga's Workshop" display at Barneys New York.

AVAF's ability to exist in both fine art and pop culture spaces with their elaborate, vibrant, and spirited aesthetic makes their work accessible to a vast audience.
