"The Arrow Pulse was one of the many popular designs I made for my recent solo exhibition, Remix in Detroit. I decided to make a smaller-sized edition (5) of the Arrow Pulse arrows as this design is a popular and iconic style of the arrow. I had designed the cut files on my computer with Adobe Illustrator, then had them laser cut to ensure their perfection and unison in shape. After the cuts were made I individually removed each pulse and assigned it a specific color. What you see in the finished piece is a colorfully, composed wooden arrow pulse." - Above

"The Psychedelic series were made in conjunction with my recent solo exhibition Remix. All of the Psychedelic series was designed with an emphasis on a sharp visual contrast. It's similar to 'Op-art' (Optical Art) which makes your eyes trip out. It's an effect that alters your perception as if you were on Psychedelic drugs. Some of the Psychedelic designs I made were featured in Remix, and some of them I created specifically for this series. This particular 'Sunset Strip' design I made with more complexity for my solo exhibition Remix. The Remix exhibition was about interchanging and swapping different cut patterns of the same design, in different colors to achieve the final piece.

The 'Charlotte Limited Edition Archival Pigment Prints on 290gsm Moab Rag Fine Art Paper' is a testament to his ability to transcend the traditional boundaries of street art. Released in 2019, this limited edition of 25 signed and numbered prints demonstrates ABOVE's commitment to precision and his embrace of modern techniques to elevate graffiti art to new levels of sophistication. With its vibrant color palette and hypnotic patterns, this artwork reflects the pulsating energy of the urban environments that street art often comments on. The use of archival pigment on fine art paper ensures that the intensity of the colors and the sharpness of the lines are preserved, capturing the immediacy of graffiti art while providing durability. With each piece 18x18 inches, 'Charlotte' presents a perfect square of intricate design that draws the viewer into a visual exploration of depth and movement. ABOVE's Exploration of Identity Through Prints ABOVE has been a prominent artist on the international street art scene since the late 1990s, known for his distinctive arrow motif and large-scale, multi-layered works. In 'Charlotte,' he moves away from the urban canvas and into fine art prints, bringing the same boldness and dynamism that characterizes his murals. This piece is a part of his artistic evolution, showcasing his exploration of identity through prints. By signing and numbering each print, ABOVE confirms its authenticity and personalizes each work, connecting with collectors on a more intimate level. The title 'Charlotte' may invoke a sense of personification, implying a narrative or identity behind the patterns dominating the visual field. This form of street pop art encourages viewers to ponder the stories and messages that may lie beneath the surface of the engaging aesthetic. It is a hallmark of ABOVE's work to engage the audience in a dialogue, prompting reflection on the urban experience, the layers of communication in public spaces, and the interplay between anonymity and fame within the graffiti art world.

These prints enable the diffusion of graffiti's visual language from the streets to private spaces, allowing a broader audience to engage with and appreciate the art form's unique aesthetic and cultural messages. ABOVE's decision to use archival pigment prints on fine art paper also indicates a movement within street art toward creating works that stand the test of time, both physically and culturally. By employing high-quality materials and printing methods, the artist ensures that the vibrancy and detail of the original work are maintained, providing an artifact that can be preserved and valued for generations. 'Charlotte' by Tavar Zawacki-ABOVE encapsulates the essence of street pop art and graffiti artwork in a form that is both accessible and exclusive.

In collaboration with Wynwood Walls artists, Wilson and the NFL created these limited-edition footballs inspired by Miami's iconic style and colorful culture. Using artists based around the world, these footballs put an international perspective on a uniquely American game that has become a global spectacle. Wynwood x Wilson SBLIV Football: A Fusion of Sports and Street Pop Art The Wynwood x Wilson SBLIV Football is not just a piece of sports equipment; it's a limited edition piece of art that epitomizes the intersection of athletic enthusiasm and creative street art. Created for Super Bowl LIV, this football results from a unique collaboration between Wynwood Walls, Wilson, and the NFL, featuring the distinctive touch of renowned modern street and pop graffiti artist Tavar Zawacki, also known as Above. This collaboration represents a vibrant celebration of Miami's iconic style and rich, colorful culture, with a 2019 edition limited to only 100 pieces. Each football is a playable item, a sports sculpture, and a collector's item symbolizing the cross-pollination of sports and art in contemporary culture. The Wynwood Walls, known for its dynamic street art and murals, brought its artistic vision to sports, transforming the classic football into a canvas for artistic expression. In doing so, the football transcends its traditional role and becomes a statement piece reflecting Miami's pulsating energy. Wilson, a staple name in sports, and the NFL, the governing body of American football, demonstrate their recognition of the global spectacle that the sport has become, reaching beyond American borders and resonating with a worldwide audience. Global Influence on American Football Through Art The artists involved in creating the Wynwood x Wilson SBLIV Footballs were selected from around the world, ensuring a diverse array of styles and perspectives contributing to American football's global narrative. Tavar Zawacki's work on this football reflects his signature style, characterized by bright colors, bold lines, and geometric patterns, which align perfectly with the energy and vibrancy of Miami — a city known for its rich tapestry of cultures and artistic vitality. The choice of Zawacki, an artist who has significantly impacted the street art scene, reinforces the message that American football is not only a sport but also a part of the cultural and artistic dialogue that transcends geographical boundaries. This piece of Street Pop Art & Graffiti Artwork exemplifies how sports can serve as a conduit for cultural exchange, with American football as a canvas for international artistic talent. The artwork on the football encapsulates the spirit of the city it honors, the grandeur of the event it celebrates, and the universal language of art it speaks. It stands as a testament to the power of collaboration across different domains — sports, art, and culture — and highlights how art can add depth and dimension to the world of sports. Artistic Legacy and Collectibility of the Wynwood x Wilson SBLIV Football The collectibility of the Wynwood x Wilson SBLIV Football stems from its limited edition status, the artist's renown, and its significance as a piece of Super Bowl memorabilia. The Super Bowl, an event that garners international viewership, is the perfect occasion to showcase this melding of sport and art, offering a fresh narrative to an event steeped in tradition. The footballs serve as a physical reminder that the Super Bowl is not only a championship game but also a cultural phenomenon encompassing various forms of expression, including art. The collaboration has set a precedent for how sporting events can incorporate art to enhance their cultural impact. It suggests a future where limited edition sports memorabilia created by artists becomes a norm, adding a layer of prestige and meaning to the items that fans and collectors cherish. The Wynwood x Wilson SBLIV Football by Tavar Zawacki is an artifact of a time when sport and art converged to celebrate a city's cultural heritage and the universal appeal of a game. It is a sports sculpture that captures the essence of Street Pop Art and Graffiti Artwork, marking a momentous occasion in sports and art.

    Funny Farm Archival Pigment Fine Art Limited Edition Print on 310gsm Fine Art Paper by Artist Above- Tavar Zawacki, Street Pop Art Graffiti Legend. 2016 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 100 Archival Pigment Print on 310gsm Fine Art Paper Artwork Size: 16x16 Inches Release: January 23, 2016. "I painted this arrow with rollers, latex paint, and spray paint onto an old barn. The barn was 30 feet wide x 30 feet tall at the pinnacle. The Funny Farm piece started with the help of my friend Denial, who invited me to participate in the Free 4 All Walls project in Canada last month. Denial had organized a massive barn for me to paint for the project. This was the largest arrow I've ever painted and the most coffee I drank over four days. Tim Horton's coffee should be illegal." - Above Embracing Rural Canvas: ABOVE's 'Funny Farm' Archival Pigment Fine Art Print Tavar Zawacki, the street pop art graffiti legend known as ABOVE, extended his artistic expression to rural landscapes with the 'Funny Farm' creation, culminating in a limited edition print that captures the essence of his most significant arrow piece. This limited edition archival pigment print on 310gsm fine art paper embodies ABOVE's innovative approach to street pop art, showcasing his distinct style on an unconventional canvas—an old barn. Released on January 23, 2016, the artist meticulously signed and numbered each edition piece, reflecting the authenticity and exclusivity that collectors and admirers of street art deeply value. The 'Funny Farm' artwork began as a monumental undertaking, with ABOVE utilizing rollers, latex paint, and spray paint to transform a 30x30 foot barn façade into an arresting visual statement. His choice of a rustic structure as the substrate for his iconic arrow illustrates his versatility as an artist and brings to light the dialog between urban street art and rural settings. This piece, part of the Free 4 All Walls project in Canada, is a testament to ABOVE's desire to push the boundaries of graffiti art beyond the city walls, engaging with a broader audience and environment. Technique and Inspiration Behind ABOVE's 'Funny Farm' The production of 'Funny Farm' was a labor-intensive process, demanding significant physical exertion and creative energy from ABOVE. Over four days, fortified by copious amounts of coffee, he poured his expertise into crafting an artwork as expansive in scale as it was in impact. His commentary on the addictive nature of Tim Horton's coffee injects a personal and humorous anecdote into the piece's narrative, connecting with his audience more intimately. This anecdote highlights the often-overlooked aspects of an artist's process—the external influences and the environment that can shape the creation of an artwork. ABOVE's meticulous technique and vibrant use of color in 'Funny Farm' reflect the hallmarks of his style, which is recognized worldwide. The barn, with its expansive sides, provided a grand canvas for ABOVE to articulate his vision, allowing the arrow to dominate the landscape, pointing skyward. The piece captured the attention of those who encountered it in person and managed to resonate through the limited edition prints that followed. The print serves as a visual narrative of ABOVE's journey, encapsulating the energy and spirit of the original mural. Cultural Significance of 'Funny Farm' in the Artistic Landscape The cultural significance of 'Funny Farm' within the artistic landscape is multifaceted. ABOVE's decision to create a print version of this rural mural allows for a wider dissemination of his work, bridging the gap between street art's fleeting nature and fine art's permanence. The limited-edition nature of the prints ensures that the essence of 'Funny Farm' is preserved and celebrated within the confines of private collections, galleries, and beyond. Furthermore, the artwork exemplifies ABOVE's commitment to street pop art and graffiti as accessible art that transcends geographical and cultural boundaries. By choosing a barn in a rural setting, ABOVE challenges the often-urban-centric focus of street art, proposing a universal language of creativity that can dialogue with any environment. 'Funny Farm' as a print is a continuation of that conversation, inviting a global audience to partake in the original mural's experience and reflect on the ubiquity of art in all facets of life. 'Funny Farm' is a vibrant representation of ABOVE's artistic prowess and innovative approach to street pop art and graffiti artwork. The print immortalizes a moment in ABOVE's career where his art scaled new heights, literally and metaphorically, and reminds us of the transformative power of art in any setting.
