Tavar Zawacki POW! WOW!

1 Exchange St, Worcester, MA 01608

“He had gone by the name 'Above' up until Pow! Wow! Worcester. This was the first mural he painted under his real name because he wanted to make a transition. This is a 208 foot wall. And he said, 'I want to do something really different.' Initially his design was, 'I love you, I love you’ in the same color scheme: red, black and white juxtaposition. At the time he was dating somebody and he explained that was why he changed it to, 'I love you, marry me,' to make it the world's largest proposal. He claimed that she did not say yes. The real story is that they had broken up and when she saw the proposal, she thought he was trying to get back together. That wasn't the case. It’s a horrible story. But, it's one of those situations where a bad thing sometimes begets amazing things in that I've seen countless couples take engagement photos in front of that wall and I've seen couples renew their vows there.”

-Che Anderson, Co-Founder, POW! WOW! Worcester
